Rock Island Lofts – Minneapolis

Project Complete

Greetings and welcome to your project blog for the upcoming painting project at Rock Island Lofts in Minneapolis. We’re looking forward to being onsite with you!

Wednesday, December 2nd: Good afternoon! 

We hope your week is off to a great start! The crew is back onsite and they are completing the marked touch ups in the stairways and elevator lobbies. 

It has been our pleasure to be onsite and we want to thank your onsite manager Dennis and the Board for all of his help to facilitate the project as well as your manager Amanda. Thank you to the board and to Todd for their help in detective skills to recover a car that was taken from the front of the building. We’ve recovered the car and all is well! 

We hope you have a great rest of the year!

Dennis is rocking some sweet Rock Island swag and smiling under his mask of course!

We hope you all had a joyful Thanksgiving weekend. We appreciated the time away to spend with family and also rest and recharge with a long weekend.

We are just loving this stretch of warm weather. We hope you can all get out to enjoy it!

We ask that you’re mindful of traversing through the stairwells while the work is being completed in those areas. Thank you!
