139 Tuxedo Update

Dear Future Residents,

Welcome to your latest update for 139 Tuxedo. The last 8 weeks have been challenging due to the extreme cold weather and high winds. However our trade’s people have been doing their best to complete the exterior foundation and concrete work. The north stairs are 75% complete and the south staircase is currently being formed for a concrete pour scheduled on Feb 8th. The first floor elevator shafts are complete. Balconies, stairs and steel web floor joists are all currently being constructed offsite. Gravel is currently being distributed to begin construction on the parkade.

Some individuals have still not finalized their suite modifications. To prevent any possible possession date delays, please ensure this is completed in a timely manner.

It has come to our attention that some future residents are interested in installing a central vacuum system in their unit. This needs to be completed prior to our drywall phase of construction. Our exclusive supplier is Vacuflo Manitoba. The majority of the products and services they offer have a lifetime guarantee and you will find Alan Gray (the owner) a wealth of knowledge and a pleasure to work with. He can be reached via phone (204-783-8505 OR 204-227-1600) or email at alan@vacuflomanitoba.com.

 

Sincerely,

Myles Kraut

139 Tuxedo Update

Dear Future Residents,

Welcome to your latest update for 139 Tuxedo. We are please to inform you that our crane has been erected and is ready for operation. Some of you with friends or family who attend the JCC may have noticed the crane shifting positions quite regularly. This is normal, as it needs to change directions in accordance with the wind, similar to an anchored sailboat. All hands are diligently working on completing the remaining foundation contribution. As the weather becomes colder, it is necessary to take extra steps for concrete curing (wrap concrete forms in tarps, add glycol and heat for several hours until cured). We are continuing to work on the elevator and stairwell shafts.

For those of you who are interested in making countertop and/or kitchen sink changes, outside of our standard selections, follow the proceeding instructions.

Meet with Michelle Chisick from Interior Illusions to view all of our standard selections of countertops. For those looking to view more options, Michelle has many samples outside of our standard selections to choose from. Michelle will direct you to Louise at Stone N’ Counter for pricing of materials outside of our standard finishing options.

For those of you that are changing the dimensions of the kitchen or bathroom cabinetry, it is necessary to get new FINALIZED drawings from Dean at Imperial before Stone N’ Counters will be able to provide you with any pricing. This is because the pricing will be dependant on size and shape of the countertops.

Please allow a minimum of 4 business days for a response from Stone N’ Counters.

There will be no construction from December 21st to December 27th due to holiday break.

 

Sincerely,

139 Tuxedo Update

Dear Future Residents,

Welcome to your latest update for 139 Tuxedo. We are pleased to announce despite a very hectic month (Marc Kipnes becoming a grandfather and myself getting married) we accomplished a great deal on-site. We have been working diligently on completing the perimeter foundation. Currently we are 60% complete and anticipate full completion by the 2nd week of November. The elevator and stairwell shafts have started and will take approximately 45 days to complete. The tower crane concrete pads are finished and the crane should be on site by month end. Off-site sewer and water is complete. On-site sewer and water is currently 30% finished and is scheduled for completion by the end of November. We are hoping to start the superstructure contribution by the 4th week of November.

According to our records 11 purchasers have not yet contacted Michelle at Interior Illusions to begin their colour selection process. You can reach Michelle via phone (204-925-4162) or email at michellec@interiorillusions.ca. As mentioned in previous updates, the deadline for all selections and changes is December 31st, 2017. For those who do not complete this process by the deadline, colours will be selected on your behalf, which will replicate what was seen in the presentation centre. I recommend going to Michelle first before visiting our suppliers. Michelle will provide you with a list of our designated contacts at each supplier. You will be able to make a personal appointment with their staff that has specific knowledge to 139 Tuxedo.

Those who are interested in enclosing your balcony please contact us at your earliest convenience as we are trying to get an idea of the number of interested parties. Keep in mind our initial quotes are coming in between $40,000-$60,000 per enclosure.

Many of you inquired about technological customizations to your unit. SI Alarms will be available to meet with you on a one-on-one basis to discuss any low voltage solutions you may want installed during the construction process and finished before and during possession.  There services extend from custom layout and design of:

  • Security Alarm
  • Room to room audio systems
  • Surround sound
  • Lighting automation
  • Home entertainment including TV placement and setup
  • Home Automation
  • HVAC Controls

SI Alarms has been servicing the Winnipeg market for over 16 years, and will be the only Low Voltage Contractor that will have access to the site during construction.  SI Alarms has appointed Amo Imbrogno to this project and can be reached at phone: 204-231-1606 ext 711 email: amo@sialarms.com to set up an appointment.

139 Tuxedo Update

Welcome to your latest update for 139 Tuxedo

I am happy to announce that the constant pounding of piles is over! September was a very productive month seeing the completion of over 365 piles being installed. The foundation work is currently underway with 20% poured and we anticipate it will be 50% complete by the end of the month. Upon completion, plumbing and electrical work will begin. By October 14th the 2nd phase of our sewer and water contribution will commence. On or around October 7th our elevator shaft will start to be installed. We anticipate 20% will be complete by month end. We currently have 17 skilled trade workers onsite working 10- hour shifts. Upon completion of the foundation, the number of trade people will rise to approximately 40. Although the rainfall in September was greater then usual, we have held course with minimal delays.

I know many of you are well underway in your unit customizations and colour selections, as well some of you have completed and signed off on your selections and changes. However, for those of you that have yet to begin, I strongly recommend contacting Michelle Chisick at Interior Illusions as soon as possible. As more of you are making appointments, her schedule will be filling up. For those of you who are making significant changes such as structural, electrical, plumbing, we encourage you to meet with Michelle first and she will be able to direct you to our architect Yaron Walter as a new drawing may be require. As a reminder, the deadline for all changes and colour selections is December 31st, 2017. Any unit that is not signed off by the deadline will default to the colour selections seen in our presentation center. As always, don’t hesitate to contact Adam if you have any questions or concerns via phone or email. You can also find our latest updates on our website 139tuxedo.com in the updates section. Look forward to our next update in a month’s time.

Sincerely,

139 Tuxedo Update

Welcome to your latest update for 139 Tuxedo

As I’m sure many of you have seen (or for those of you who live in the area, have heard) we have completed 75% of the piling contribution. Bituminex is currently working on the underground services that tie in under Tuxedo Blvd and Doncaster. That portion of the sewer and water work will be completed by Wednesday September 6th. Our foundation work has begun and should be completed by mid-October. Shortly followed by the erection of our steel super-structure. Thus far we are on schedule and have encountered minimal delays.

We know many of you have been waiting patiently to choose your finishing materials and unit customizations and the time has finally arrived! This stage in our project is extremely important as it could lead to uncessacary complications. As such, we ask that you follow the procedure laid out below and to contact the appropriate representatives from each trade.

Your first step is to make an appointment with Michelle Chisick from Interior Illusions (contact information below). Michelle is equipped with all standard finishing materials and colour selections. We have supplied Interior Illusions with additional complimentary options, some of which were not displayed at our presentations centre. She will take you step-by-step through each room enabling you to customize your unit to your liking. In the event one of our many standard options is not satisfactory, you next step is to contact the trade directly. Michelle will have a list of all trades and their appropriate contacts designated for 139 Tuxedo clients. All upgrades/changes MUST be coordinated through the appropriate representative as these representatives have a unique understanding of our project and are equipped with all pertinent floorplans. They will have the necessary information to assist you in choosing finishing materials that are outside of our standard scope.

There will be a single $500.00 administration fee for any changes which are outside of our standard finishing material options. There will be an additional single $500.00 fee for any electrical, plumbing, mechanical, etc.… or any change which requires a new architectural rendering. Remember this is only necessary in the event significant floor plan changes are desired. There is no charge of your initial consultation with Michelle at Interior Illusions.

Based on the timeline of our project, it is imperative that all customization information is selected, submitted and signed off by December 31st, 2017. In the event selections are not received and signed off by December 31st, 2017, all colour and finishing materials will be chosen on your behalf and will reflect the standard options displayed in our presentation centre.

Once again, your first step is to make an appointment with Michelle Chisick from Interior Illusions. She will have all essential information required for your finishing material selection.

As always, don’t hesitate to contact Adam if you have any questions or concerns via phone or email.

Sincerely,

Myles Kraut
