We will use this space to keep our community updated with the construction happening in the rear lot of our Highlands studio. Check back for updates; newest updates will be at the top.
Construction is in full swing! The old stairs have been removed, and the support beams are being installed. If the weather cooperates, our landlords estimate the work will be done before the New Year!
Finally an update, and how convenient that we are currently closed to in-person classes: Painting has begun on the rear of the building, and the old stairs will be demolished, and the entire rear lot will be closed off, beginning December 8th. Check out the architect’s rendering of the new covered stairwell 🤩 If we reopen before the project is completed, the only studio access will be from Dundee at the front of the building, and all parking will be in our reserved spots in the lot next door, or on neighborhood streets.
We are still in a holding pattern waiting on the stair delivery date which will establish the rest of the construction schedule. Estimated removal of the existing stairs will be around mid-November at which time we will start using the main entrance. We will share info as we get it!
Construction crews arrived early to begin the prep work to improve drainage and properly level the back lot. Our ✨new staircase✨ has been ordered 🙌 and should take 3-4 weeks to be complete. There will be about one month where we will be unable to use the rear entrance but we do not know those dates yet. For now, please park in our spaces in the rear lot neighboring ours (they are clearly marked) or park on the neighborhood streets.
