The Block: Construction Update – January 2014

The new Calgary condos and townhomes at The Block are making major progress, and each individual home is starting to take shape! Our sales team stopped by to grab some photos and chat with your site superintendent Colin to get you the latest construction details.

This month the site team has been working to ensure the interiors of the homes come together, along with finishing some exterior elements.

Here’s where your new home at The Block is at:

Inside the development, it’s all about finishings! Millwork and cabinetry are being installed on the first and second floor condos, which includes built-in media centres, pantry areas, and all the other cabinetry. It’s so cool to see what cabinet finishes each homeowner chose, and how unique each home is.

On the second and third floor condos, drywall is being completed (specifically on the third floor) and painting is starting to happen. Tile is also being installed on these floors, and it looks amazing! This floor to ceiling tile is at grout stage in many of the homes, and it’s getting “wow” reactions from the entire site team!

Outside the homes, brick is going up at the main entrance. That will help the space feel more complete and will be an incredible feature. Siding in the courtyard is ongoing, and soon the tarps will be coming down completely on the exterior of the building.

The inner workings of this development are also being completed. Boilers are now fired up and circulating in-floor heating. What a sweet feature! Electrical rough-ins are also being worked on in the north facing townhomes, with drywalling to follow. Sprinklers are now also being connected throughout the project.

The Block is moving along quickly, and it’s seriously exciting to see the progress as each homeowner’s new place starts to come together. Take a look at the photos above and keep it locked to our Facebook page – we’re posting new photos every week, and checking in with your site superintendent to get you the latest info.
