In response to a post about delays at Parc the community sales manager for the project has sent me this e-mail:
My name is Troy Howard, and I’m the Community Sales Manager for The Parc condominiums. I just wanted to drop you a line to help clear up any confusion amongst bloggers on your site who are currently discussing the delays at The Parc.
Unfortunately, our development and many others in the city have been fraught with an unprecedented amount of constructions delays. As I am sure you are aware, in the past year, there has been triple the amount of construction in the city over previous years, resulting in supply and manpower shortages, which in turn cause delays in construction timelines. The increase in construction activity has also affected the City of Seattle Department of Planning and Development, which is responsible for site inspections and issuing our Temporary Certificates of Occupancy. The Parc is not the only new-construction condominium that is experiencing construction and move-in delays – most of the projects scheduled for occupancy this spring/summer are delayed.
Both the development and sales teams at The Parc are doing everything humanly possible to try to expedite construction and get our homebuyers moved in to their new homes, without sacrificing the quality of construction.
Our construction team is continuing their efforts to maintain the project schedule, and as of today, our completion dates are as follows:
TCO 1 (South Tower Levels 1-4): Occupancy is anticipated in August.
TCO 2 (Levels 5 – 8): Occupancy is anticipated in September
TCO 3 (Levels 9-13/PH): Occupancy is anticipated in late September
TCO 4 (North Tower, all floors) Occupancy is anticipated in October.
I hope this helps to clear up any confusion and speculation amongst your readers.
Thank you for your time,
The Parc Community Sales Manager
