Friday, May 1st: Hello and happy Friday! 

It’s a new month, the sun is shining, and we are wrapping your project today. We wanted to thank you for your cooperation as we painted the railings in your common areas as well as around the City Homes and the Town Homes. It has been our pleasure sprucing up the railings throughout the property. Have a great weekend!

Thursday, April 30th: Greetings! 

It’s a beautiful day! 

The crew is making their way around the buildings in Phase III and will be wrapping up today as well. We will return to make touch ups after areas have been marked with blue tape. Thanks!

Wednesday, April 29th: Good morning! 

We are back onsite after our rain delays. The crew is prepping at painting in Phase III. They are anticipating 1-2 more working days, weather permitting to be finished with your railings.

Monday, April 27th: Greetings! 

We hope you all enjoyed the beautiful weather we had over the weekend! After the rain however, the crew will not be onsite today to allow the substrates to dry fully before returning to finish up the railings. 

They are about 99% complete in Phase II and will soon move onto Phase III which they are anticipating to take about 3-4 days to complete, weather permitting. 

Friday, April 24th: Good morning and TGIF! 

The sun is shining and we’re sure glad to be outside and enjoying it at Grant Park. The crew has moved onto Phase II and is painting the entry level and upper ‘Juliet Railings’ along with the lantern lights. We anticipate the crew to wrap up this phase today as well. They are really cruising! Tomorrow they’ll begin on Phase III with the ‘Juliet Railings’ and the lantern lights. 

Taking apart the lantern lights to clean, prep, and paint them.

We hope you were able to enjoy the weather yesterday! We are certainly ready for more warm weather!

The crew will be finishing up in the courtyard – Phase I today. They’ll then move to Phase II – starting in the SW corner on MN 65/5th Ave S. and moving clockwise around these entry railings.

The crew is off and running at Grant Park this morning! It’s going to be a beautiful day and the crew is thrilled to be prepping and painting some of your common area items – planters, benches, etc. 

Please be mindful when outside and near areas we are working on for wet paint – thank you! 

There will be 3 Phases for this project:

Phase I – Courtyard — benches, garbage cans, and posts. 

Phase II & Phase III- Residence Entry Railings

We’ll post a tentative phase map of all areas we’ll be painting for this project soon – stay tuned!

We’ll be painting several areas with railings including the ‘City Home & Town Home’ handrail supports and lantern lights, pool building/common area courtyard supports, courtyard bollard posts, planter urns, garage can closures, common area benches, and the ‘Juliet’ railings. 

Stay tuned for further information this week as we get scheduling finalized. Thanks!
