Greetings neighbors,

We hope this message finds you safe and well. Below are the latest updates on our progress at "The Emery".


Power Connection Work - June/July

We anticipate a power interruption when we connect our permanent power to the site; estimated June/July 2021. We will continue to request clearer communication and more careful planning by PG&E for future planned outages that affect the neighborhood.

Sidewalk Removals (Horton Street west side)

Next week starting Tuesday 4/13 our subcontractor will remove sidewalks along the west side of Horton Street between Sherwin Avenue and 45th Street in order to investigate potential tree conflicts with the joint trench and curb/gutter/sidewalk work to be installed. The joint trench installed in this area is also tied to the "undergrounding" work required on Horton Street. We will also remove sidewalks north of 45th Street where large utility boxes will be placed close to trees. We will also have our engineers stake and mark (w/ spray paint) the facilities to be installed along this frontage so we can identify any conflicts with existing tree root structures, etc. It is anticipated these sidewalks will be out of commission for roughly 8 weeks and southbound pedestrian traffic will be diverted across Horton Street at 45th as a result. Thanks for your patience as we prepare to complete this important joint trench/undergrounding work on Horton Street.

Reclaimed Water Line Install - Sherwin Ave.

We will be making reclaimed water line connections to the site the week of 4/19/21. There will be some work on Sherwin and Horton Street.

Soil Off Haul

We anticipate soil off haul occurring on Thursday 4/8 and Friday 4/9 this week. Please be aware there will be increased truck traffic and street sweeping associated with this activity.

Sherwin Avenue Sidewalk Construction (North side)

We will start construction of the new permanent sidewalks along the north side of Sherwin Avenue in the next 2-3 weeks.


Building B1 roof completion, window installation, and continued work on mechanical, plumbing, electrical, etc. rough installations.

Building B2 wood framing continues. Mechanical trades are working inside the garage and the wood frame structures.

Building D placement of concrete is complete now. Vertical framing work starts soon.

Building C (last one!) footings and foundations are now underway.

Structural Concrete placement remaining:

There are roughly 4 large structural building concrete placements left for this site (Building C) to be complete by the end of May 2021. Lately due to the volume of work in the industry we have been dealing with excessively slow concrete supply issues on days when we do this type of work so while we hope to avoid future noise ordinance waivers (finishing by 6pm) it is possible we may need waivers to complete this remaining work. We won't know until the work is under way on the day in question so please stay tuned...

Please keep in mind that with the rainy season upon us there will be a greater need for street sweeping so we are compliant with local and state stormwater management ordinances.

Have a safe week and we will be in touch with additional updates as the work progresses.
