“June is the gateway to summer.”
Thanks for your patience!
We understand the painting process is a little inconvenient, but the feedback from owners with completed units is phenomenal! Thanks, everyone, for your patience as we freshen up the building! If you have specific questions, Miguel the Project Manager is happy to help!
Just a gentle reminder that all shredded paper needs to be bagged and put in a recycle bin. Loose shred should never be put down the chute; it causes the eye at the bottom of the chute to malfunction, creating a huge jam. Instead of cleaning after the holiday, Maintenance spent 2 hours unclogging the chute and compactor from the 3rd floor trash room.
Most people have already submitted their pet audit responses, but we are still waiting on a few residents. If you haven’t already, please take a few minutes to submit your pet’s info on the website (no unit # needed) so we can check you off our list. Thanks so much to everyone who has finished submitting this information. We’re still loving all the great pet photos!
Our staff will be observing Memorial Day; the office will be closed on Monday, May 28th, 2018
If you have a maintenance emergency, please phone the on-call manager at 206-223-0721.
We look forward to seeing you when the office reopens on Tuesday morning.

Painting Project Begins May 7
The painters will begin hanging the swing-stages over the 20th side of the building on Monday, May 7th. We anticipate they will begin actual pressure washing on Wednesday the 9th or Thursday the 10th. If you live on this side of the community, it is crucial for your patios to be completely cleared of all items by Wednesday the 9th. The painters will be pressure washing first, then painting and resurfacing your decks. We are hoping to minimize the amount of time windows and patios are inaccessible by completing the project in stacks, rather than by floor. Thanks in advance for your assistance with preparing for the building’s refresh!
We’re seeing some adorable kitties and pups! Keep up the great responses, we love seeing your non-human family members. Hop on the website and fill out the form at the bottom of the “Update your Info” page! Once our baseline records are back on track, we should be able to simply ask about any changes, without having everyone jump through this hoop again. We’re looking forward to having all the responses in by the May 15 deadline. We love seeing your pets!
We’re happy to announce that painting of the building’s exterior has been scheduled. PaintSmith will begin with the 20th/Russell Side of the community. We have attached a letter from PaintSmith which details their process, as well as a map. You will note the map has dates beginning April 30. This has been rescheduled May 7th, so our residents have a little more time to prepare.
As we get updates on when the next phase will start, we will pass that information along.
If you live on this side of the building:
Thanks so much for helping us to prepare for this project.
The water-shut off scheduled for Tuesday, April 17th has been postponed. We will notify you as soon as we have a different date.
NOTICE OF WATER SHUT-OFF
TUESDAY, APRIL 17, 2018 from 10AM – 1PM
The life expectancy of recirculating pumps, which sends hot water to the units, has passed. We will be replacing them on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 from 10 AM until 1 PM.
Please plan accordingly; there will likely be no water during this time period.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Lana or Brian. We are happy to help you in any way we can!

Fire Safety Meeting
Did you know that most fires begin in the home? Join us for a fire safety prevention meeting on Wed., April 18, 7-8 p.m. in the community room. Dana Catts, from Seattle Fire Department will be discussing home fire safety, what to do in case of a fire and answer your questions about fire safety!
Prevent Car Break-ins
Just a reminder, the best way to prevent car prowls and break-ins is to leave nothing of value in your vehicle (even remotes) and be sure to lock your vehicle. We have had a couple people report they felt like their vehicles had been prowled; nothing was taken, but they’d left their cars open.
We understand parking in the garage is tight. Because of this, please remember that the rules state, “nothing should extend over the sides of the sidelines of the parking space or past the end of the sidelines into the driveway area.” Please make sure you’re pulling as far forward as possible.
“There is no elevator to success; you have to take the stairs.”
A Hearty Thanks
Thanks to everyone for your participation in the deck inspections. We discovered 58 decks out of 169 units in need of repair. As soon as we have a timeline, we’ll let you know!
Pet Audit Coming Soon
We’ve tried to give everyone a break from audits during the last few months, but need a complete update to our pet information. You can get a jump on this by updating it on the website – be sure to upload a photo – or wait for the email with a form.
Parking Space Storage
Just a quick reminder that parking spaces are not to be used as storage areas. If you have more than a bucket of car related items, please move them to your unit or storage.
Congrats to Dan, our Sr. Maintenance Tech
On the morning of March 22nd, Dan’s wife gave birth to Jack Robert Farmery, a 7 pound, 15 ounce bundle of joy. We couldn’t be happier for Dan and his family!
On Monday, March 19th, between 8:00am and 2:00pm, the controller and battery back-up will be installed on the P2 roll up garage door.
This upgrade and repair require the garage door to remain immobile; you will not be able to enter or exit the garage during this time. Please plan accordingly to ensure you are able to make appointments, etc.
Thank you for your patience.
We constantly strive to be as financially responsible as possible, while meeting the needs of our residents. We have noticed that our Administrative Assistant, Dylan, is not being utilized at an appropriate level to justify staffing after 7pm.
We also understand that being available earlier on Saturdays is a benefit to our residents and have adjusted our hours accordingly.
Until further notice, the office hours will be:
Monday 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Tuesday 8:00 am – 7:00 pm
Wednesday 8:00 am – 7:00 pm
Thursday 8:00 am – 7:00 pm
Friday 8:00 am – 7:00 pm
Saturday 9:00 am – 7:00 pm
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. If you have questions, please feel free to reach out.
