Additionally the building has undergone extensive and comprehensive remodeling and refurbishment in the recent past. Just a few examples – all of the common spaces had the interiors remodeled including brand new mailboxes for residents. The entire building exterior was updated and all the windows and sliding glass doors have been replaced with top-of-the-line Milgard dual pane windows. At the same time all of the balconies on the upper two floors were reinforced.
