Via Sol May Construction

Inside each apartment designed by MSR Design, energy efficient appliances have been coming into place. All apartments now have their maple cabinets, granite countertops and windowsills, and entry doors with keyless entry. Ben Franklin Electric powers the apartments, including a welcoming light at each doorway.

Horwitz is moving quickly to bring water, filtered air, and thermal comfort to every home. US Internet is wiring up Via Sol in preparation for connecting discounted super fast fiber internet.

Our general contractor, Greiner, is almost done with the top 5th floor, which hosts our 18 live/work for creatives. After cleaning everything, the project team has been making a list and checking it twice (at least) to ensure everything is ready for residents to move in near the end of July!

Color is blooming inside Via Sol with the flowers as we begin seeing accent colors in the garage, the hallways, the stairwells, and the brightly painted Sound Space for residents who need to make a bit of noise without bothering neighbors.

Outside, the team has been working hard in a mix of sun and storms to install siding and balconies. Rachel is preparing to bring in topsoil for the Urban Forest designed by Barr, which will increasingly manage Via Sol’s stormwater as the forest grows and flourishes, easing load on the municipal stormwater system.

Stay tuned for the June construction update as Via Sol’s apartments look more like homes and the landscape begins to take shape.
