Lofts@SixMileCreek October Photo Update

October 28, 2014 // by Jason Henderson

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 sprinkler pipe-fitters have made their way from the ground floor to 5th, and interior metal stud walls were roughed-in on the ground through the third floor with bottom plate layouts installed on the fourth as of late last week. Shower stalls have made their way into more than a dozen bathrooms, as plumbing risers and pipes are fitted alongside wall completions. A paint contractor has been spraying down the structural steel with fire retardant intumescent paint (the white coating). The structure topped-out on October 2nd with a press event and completion is scheduled for early 2015.

The Lofts@SixMileCreek project topped-off last Thursday by holding a ceremony with the Mayor, City Officials, the press, and the public. The 7-story, 49,244 square foot project is aiming for completion in early 2015, and will contain 45 rental apartment units.

The structural erection was done by Rochester Rigging and Erectors, and utilized the Girder-Slab® precast concrete plank flooring system, which sets on top of D-Beam® girders, is grouted at the seams, and allows for quicker installation, and 8-10″ floor depths, which helps maximize floor-to-ceiling heights, and minimize the height of the building. The 7-story structure is considered a high-rise by building codes, thus the heavy-gauge construction.

Lofts@SixMileCreek Tops Out Thursday

September 26, 2014 // by Jason Henderson

Lofts@SixMileCreek, the name for the Cayuga Place/Cayuga Green 2 project is now official, and the top-out ceremony is this coming Thursday, October 2nd at noon (12:00). Topping-out (or “topping off”) is when a building’s structural assembly is complete, generally when the highest point of the structure is finished.

The 7-story, 45-unit, 49,244 GSF project from Bloomfield/Schon + Partners out of Cincinnati, Ohio has been moving right along, as the final columns and beams of the structure are craned-in and secured, and concrete plank floors are installed this week and next. The ground floor has been levelled and plastic sheeting and steel mesh has been put down to prepare for a concrete pour for the slab floor. The core assembly began back in July, with the steel assembly following-up in early August. The project is being constructed by Turnbull-Wahlert Construction.

Here’s the Press Release announcement:
