To our Neighbors of the American House Senior Living Community at 703 Madison Street in Oak Park –
As we head into the start of the holiday season, we wanted to provide a progress update on the American House project here in Oak Park. By the end of November, we are expecting our building to be fully enclosed with window and brick installations completed. We have installed all our large HVAC equipment on the roof and the roof installation is underway. There is still a lot to accomplish on the project, but we are nearing the phase of construction where most of the progress is on the inside. So, other than delivery trucks along Madison the activities on the outside of the building will seem to stop for a while.
We are working diligently on the interiors with drywall installations underway. We are expecting flooring, cabinetry, and painting activities to get started in December. In addition, we have started the work on our permanent elevator in the building which once complete will allow us to remove the temporary hoist from the North elevation. We expect this to happen before the end of the year as well.
We’ll be back outside in 2022 with the spring weather to finish up exterior items such as removal of our construction fence, repaving the alley that runs between Euclid & Wesley and sidewalk construction on Madison along with the remaining landscaping around the building and on the south building terraces.
We continue to remind our contractors of the requirements for this project as it relates to delivery access locations as well as construction parking. We also continue to remind them of the Village ordinances regarding working hours. This will continue to be a conversation for us on this project as we keep moving forward and more trades and activities are involved on this project.
We want to thank you for reaching out to us with your concerns. We continue to strive to be good neighbors in our new home here in Oak Park and provide continued communication. Please continue to encourage your neighbors to join our email list to keep informed in real time of impending construction work. We are committed to being candid through this process as we understand it can be disruptive. If you have any other questions or concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
