November to February photo updates here for the downtown Ithaca Lofts@SixMileCreek project, building a 7-story, 49,244 square foot structure that will contain 45 rental apartment units. The building is being developed by Bloomfield/Schon + Partners, with construction by Turnbull-Wahlert Construction.
The structure was furred-out with lumber on the edges and wrapped in plastic in November to prepare for the arctic winter we’ve been experiencing here in Ithaca, and work has since sped-away to finished wall-framing, rough plumbing, electric, HVAC, exterior sheathing, exterior wall systems (windows and conventional metal framing) and interior wallboard. The phasing for each trade has progressed from the first floor and up, so it’s likely that the lower stories are in the midst of finish-work. The shower stalls made their way in during the early wall-framing phase in October (most units secure directly to studs nowadays).
The structure topped-out on October 2nd with a press event and completion is scheduled for Spring 2015, probably May.
