Replacement of the hot water riser serving the ’05 Unit Bathrooms and ‘06 Guest Bathrooms from the 30th to 55th floors has been scheduled to begin Monday October 14, 2019. To initiate this process, inspections of the work locations in these units are scheduled for Thursday September 19th and Friday September 20th, between 9AM and 3PM. Our plumber expects to take about 10 to 15 minutes or less per unit. He will start on the 55th floor around 9am on Thursday and work down to the 42nd floor by 3pm. On Friday, from the 41st floor to the 30th Floor.
These inspections lay vital ground work for the project. We assess conditions of plumbing and other fixtures to help plan needs for each unit individually. Letters are sent to each Owner and resident to help you prepare and know what to expect. Following that we will hold an informational Town Hall Meeting on Monday September 30th, at 6:30PM in the Party Room. At the meeting we will describe the history and purpose of the project, and more specific details for residents, including an opportunity to ask questions and address any concerns you have.
Riser replacements are among the most challenging and invasive projects needed in a building such as Park Tower. Belongings will need to be removed from the impacted locations, and each business day the water will be off from 9AM to as late as 5PM while the plumbing lines are replaced. Thankfully, to date we have replaced 18 of these risers throughout the building, so once we have completed the inspections, we can reasonably set expectations and answer questions. Work will generate some dust, be noisy at times, and there will be times you may not have use of faucets and toilets. But if you are prepared, know what to expect, and work in tandem with us, we are confident the project can be a success.
For your convenience, we are including a preliminary calendar of activities.Riser Project Calendar HZ 05.06 09.2019 This may be updated following the inspections, but this is our best effort to reasonably map out the expected course of the project.
NOW IS THE TIME TO PLAN – not only for the project, but if you want to remodel your bathroom in tandem with this work. The calendar zeros in on where we expect to be and when. Waiting until we get to your unit, and then saying “Hi, I want to remodel” will not work. Start planning now if you haven’t already.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation, patience and understanding as we plan to make these improvements. If you have any questions e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
