6/9/21 Update - Horton Street Joint Trench Street Work - Starting 6/14/21

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

We anticipate a power interruption when we connect our permanent power to the site; estimated early September 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)

Sidewalks along the west side of Horton Street between Sherwin Avenue and 45th Street were removed 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 also removed sidewalks north of 45th Street where large utility boxes are to be placed close to trees. Our engineers staked and marked (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 to the east side of Horton Street as a result. Thanks for your patience as we prepare to complete this important joint trench/undergrounding work on Horton Street.


The Joint Trench (power and telecom utility trenching) work on Horton Street will begin this Monday 6/14/21. Please be aware that extensive traffic controls will be in place during this work and it will take approximately 8 weeks to complete between 46th street and Park Ave.

Sherwin Avenue Sidewalk Construction

Sidewalks are under active construction on the North side of Sherwin, please be aware of extra traffic controls in this area.

Once this work is complete we will be shifting sidewalk construction to the South side of Sherwin, east of Hubbard. This work will probably start in 4-6 weeks.

45th & Hollis Intersection

One of the improvements we are constructing as part of the development is a traffic signal at 45th and Hollis. That work is under way now and will take place in stages over a few months. Please look out for traffic controls in that area temporarily. We have worked with shuttle providers to temporarily relocate their pick up locations.


Building B1 stucco/plaster/ brick installation ongoing. Drywall has started to be placed inside the building.

Building B2 Window installation is in progress. Mechanical trades are working inside the garage and the wood frame structures. Drywall installation inside the building is underway.

Building D Wood framing is in progress. Fire Sprinkler and plumbing installation continuing.

Building C Wood Framing work is now in progress.

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.
