Restoration Pictures - Starlight Tower

 
June 15, 2008: Fellow Starlighters I thought you might enjoy a quick progress shot of Starlight Tower's Restoration. The flooring workers have now cleared all of the floor surfaces, finishing with a jackhammer concert outside apartment #208. The smiling worker in the picture said the next step is to put on and mold the new surface to drain water toward the street, not toward the piping which is unable to handle the load. The lucky residents of unit #208 actually had jackhammers in stereo as the contractors took out their windows and cut away damaged concrete on the west side of the building.
The removal of ceiling asbestos and stucco continues on the fifth floor. Damage to the concrete appears to be lighter with every floor as they move down the building. Shoring columns are no longer needed to support the ceiling. (Heavy damage on the upper floors required reinforcement.)br>It has been a noisy, dusty time but the workers have been friendly which I think is most comforting for resident Starlighters.

May 22nd, 2008: Fellow Starlighters, the Restoration pictures of our beloved Starlight Tower placed bellow are offered courtesy of George Wolff and Gigi Guthrie of #208 for our visual benefit. The Engineer's Report and pictures for sure were helpful for all of us to see the damage but these color pictures take the prize!
Quoting some of George's remarks: "There are pictures of the renovation which has uncovered severe damage to beams and floor plates on the seventh, eighth, ninth, and penthouse ceilings. Itís serious and needs shoring up at the north and south ends of the building only. Also some stucco has been removed. The floor surfacing has been removed and the concrete underneath has apparently escaped damage. The problems are worst at the north and south ends and the damage is most severe the higher you go on the building".
Thank you very much Gigi and George on behalf of all absent Starlighters for taking the time and sending us these pictures and please, keep them coming!
