Welcome to the Timeline Page for the Downtown Lake Oswego 137 Redevelopment

WEEKLY UPDATE

Much of the Activity from Last Week Continues

Building A along “A” Avenue

Roofers continue working on installation ion of the roof and are on schedule to complete the flat roof in the next few weeks, weather permitting. Crews continue sheathing the building which began on the Southwest corner. They are now working East down the South elevation. Inside the building, crews are focusing on framing the ceilings and soffits in the units and this also continues for the next few weeks. On the 2nd floor, crews are finishing framing the ceilings and soffits in the units. Installation of the interior walls starts next week.

Building B along Second Street

Crews are getting close to finishing up the concrete structure for the building. The last pour for the 3rd floor was split into two pours because of the weather. The first pour was completed on Tuesday and the second pour is scheduled for next Wednesday. We sequenced the pours so that crews could start working on installing the formwork for the conservatory level of the Building while preparing to pour the last pour on level 3.  The exterior wall panels will begin being installed next week starting on the North end of the Building working to the South. Steel columns to support the roof for Building B will begin arriving in the coming weeks and will be installed after the exterior walls are in place. Crews have the bases for the columns and are installing those on the North side now. Crews have one more pour to finish up the concrete structure for the building. The last pour for the 3rd floor was poured Tuesday. The last concrete pour is for the Conservatory and it is scheduled for Tuesday, but the weather is not looking promising so this pour might move to later next week. The exterior wall panels will begin being installed next week starting on the North end of the Building working to the South. Steel columns to support the roof for Building B will begin arriving in the coming weeks and will be installed after the exterior walls are in place. Crews have finished installing the column bases on the North side of the building and are moving South. The emergency generator will be delivered and moved into place on the South end of the building in the next few weeks.

Building C along First Street

Crews are still working hard to get the roof installed and get the building dried in so we can start installing drywall. The 4th floor is getting close to being dry and the roofer is about 95% done with the roof. Last week we hooked up temporary heating units on the 4th floor and it is helping to dry out the floor. Once the floor is dry, crews will be installing spray foam insulation in the sloped roof areas. Crews have finished installing the weather barrier on the South end of the building and are now focusing on the North end. Crews on the South end are working and following the weather barrier crew installing flashing. Window installation is an ongoing process on the building. Inside, bathtubs are installed on the 2nd floor and will be installed on the 3rd floor beginning next week. Elevator installers are onsite and are beginning to build the elevator for the Building.
