A friend who bought a unit in The Revere was told their unit should be finished by late June. She wasn't clear if anyone else had started moving in, or if that was just her unit, or whether that's the entire project. She's not a sophisticated new const buyer.

 

They bought about a year ago.

Would love pictures from her. Usually buildings close from bottom to top. What floor is she on?

I think she's on three. They have a, shall we say, less than prime unit 😬. It looks out thru some utility poles, on to a neighboring building.

I hope they will move that utility pole. Looks like a big safety hazard. Although, you would think if they were going to move the pole, they would’ve done so before pouring the ramp.

Update: Back in June, they told her it would be mid-July, maybe the 15th or so. Now she tells me they are shooting for an August closing. Clearly it is a moving target.

 

If I was the developer, no way I leave that pole there. Unless that is some back alley angle, that makes the entire building look poorly thought out.

They will have to work with CenterPoint to move. CenterPoint will have a backlog of this type of work and will put it on their schedule. If the builder didn't reach out about this early on then they could have this situation where it isn't moved yet. The builder could speed up the process by doing the engineering work for CenterPoint and then they will move it up their backlog.

Building looks about done. I’d imagine people will start moving in soon.

My friend is still being told "end of August". She's on a lower floor, and was told once the entire floor gets the OK from COH, she can close.

 

And that pole... I drove by and took a look. It's set in asphalt, so they clearly are waiting for it to be moved, so they can concrete the patch.

She was told the CO for her floor is due by the end of this coming week. They guaranteed her she would be able to move no later than Aug 25. No idea what a guarantee involves.

It would be neat if she was the first to move in and have whole place to herself.

When we moved into The River Oaks, we were the 4th condo to take occupancy. It's definitely a weird feeling!

 

OTOH, there were so many workers & crew still finishing the place that it never really felt empty. Although at night, you had the place to yourself.
