The project is from Kentucky to New York Ave. and the work was constructed on the Kentucky Ave. and New York Ave. elevations.  Awnings and canopies are part of the project scope.  Each of the project properties, except for the Condominium on New York Ave., receives a re-roofing.  Temporary signage is part of the project scope.  Temporary signs (in vinyl) shall be provided by the contractor; they shall replicate the permanent signage.  Although some stores may have to close for short periods of time during construction, the intent of the project is to have the businesses in operation during construction.  Architect: Cristina Buendicho from CB Architects; Contractor: Shore Building Contractors, Inc.  Commencement of Construction will be early September 2006.

The project (from Morris to Chelsea on the Boardwalk) is a single story façade renovation with raised parapets.  The structures were built in the early 60’s of steel with masonry exteriors of block and fired brick.  There is a tenant next to that, then a palm reading establishment, a tee shirt shop, a TCBY-Nathans, a chocolate shop, the owner’s office, and then a Country Kitchen on the Morris corner.  Lighting and signage will afford much excitement to the McLean property (2nd from Chelsea) and also to the other properties.  The palm reading establishment receives a clear crystal ball look via signage which is backlit in white and blue.  The TCBY – Nathans location gets a faux second story glass look with a Nanawall which goes up to a marquee.  The Country Kitchen will have a semicircular space with an automatic door at its frontage.  Architect:  Herb Grana from CF Dothe Architect, LLC; Contractor:  Shore Building Contractors, Inc.  Construction start is envisioned early or mid October, 2006.  CLICK HERE to view before and after photos.

Robert Kauffmann of Stantec Architects stated that the facades are receiving light weight materials as applications.  The area will be reskinned with windows reused.  Moving east, there is a stucco and tile property with two spire structures.  The remainder of the block entails tile façade construction.  Existing façades are to be demoed, substrates investigated, skin coats applied and finish materials constructed.  Specified tile availability has been verified recently.  New second floor applications will be steel stud construction with light weight materials for finishes.  At the east end, a property will require steel donnage construction. Mr. Kauffmann stressed that Stantec has chosen to use standard readily available materials as specified items.  The restaurant on the block will be in operation during façade construction.  Architect:  Robert Kauffmann of Stantec Architects; Contractor:  R. Wilkinson & Sons.  Construction start is envisioned Fall of 2007.
