6/27/13: Modular Apartments Now Under Construction

On June 27, we visited the factory where the modular units for the 14 upper floor apartments are being constructed. There are 34 individual boxes being assembled, 17 for each of the 2 floors of apartments. We are building one floor of apartments at a time, so there are 17 boxes being constructed now. All are laid out in the factory as they will be installed. So you can actually walk through the apartments already, although there is a gap of about 5 feet between each box. The 9 1/2 foot ceilings and floor to ceiling windows give a really open feeling in the apartments. Should be some amazing views of the Center City skyline when they are installed on site! All plumbing, heating and air conditioning, fire sprinklers, and gas connections are being installed in the factory. Within the next few weeks, the kitchens, bathrooms, flooring and tile will be installed. Besides some minor finishing touches, the apartments will be complete when they leave the factory. When lifted on-site with a crane, all connections will be hooked up between the boxes.
