Happy Fall Y’all!
The weather has finally cooled down and after a hurricane and mountains piles of debris as far as the eye can see, I’m pretty sure I can speak for most everyone when I say the lower humidity and milder temps have been most welcome. Those post-Flo mosquitoes and flies were no joke! With the less severe season finally upon us, the teams working at The Pinnacle have been able to mitigate the little bit of damage we had from Florence and make some good headway on finishing up the last parts of the project.
Here’s a quick list of what has been accomplished in the past few weeks and what can be expected in the coming weeks.
- The shutters on the west side corner units were damaged by Florence but have been replaced and have had hand rails added on the inside of the balconies for extra sturdiness – they look great and provide an excellent barrier between those units and Fort Macon Marina. There isn’t much noise that comes from the marina but the shutters allow the residents of the units on that side a little more privacy. I for one think having a little private space to relax and read a book is great – if you want to be out in the open you can just go to the other side of your balcony! These shutters were a wonderful idea and a great addition to the project (despite Florence’s opinion).
- The sprinkler system inside the building has been installed and is being inspected this week. With this being completed, the contractors can now begin installing the sheet rock inside the units. With enough people working, the sheet rocking shouldn’t take very long and we will finally have somewhat of a finished product to be looking at. And let me tell you – no one is more excited to see that than the GC, the developers and Alan!
- The tubs and showers have already been installed in the bathrooms and the rest of the fixtures will follow soon now that the sheet rock process will be completed. The electrical wiring has already been done and once the walls are closed in they will be able to work on getting light fixtures and things like that installed as well.
- A big plus that was recently discovered is that we’ve found space for about 10 more parking places that would be for guests or whoever. Each unit has two spaces underneath the building so these extra spaces should alleviate any concerns that people may have had about places for their guests to park.
As of right now (and as long as things stay on track) the project should be completed by the end of the year. The budget and public offering statement are nearly ready as are the HOA covenants. The purchase contract has been drawn up by an attorney and is just awaiting approval from one additional party. We are so excited to have this completed and to be able to show everyone what we’ve all worked so hard on over the past 18 months and to finally get the wonderful folks who have made these reservations into their brand new condominiums.
There are still 3 units remaining available (1, 2 and 8) so now is the time to claim yours while they’re still left!
