They say pictures are worth a thousand words. I’ve never counted the number of words in a typical Starlight Express, but decided that no matter what I write, no literary description could compete with a look at the work in progress. I wish these pictures could be in color, but the cost of color copying would be prohibitive. However, if you have internet access, you can read the Express online and our Genius Webmaster will have all the pictures in glorious color.

The picture above is a view of the fourth floor walkway, looking north to south. The workmen are removing about three inches of concrete plus the River Rock covering from all the walkways. Most of you have seen the huge dumpster parked in the 15-minute zone on our north end. It has been filled and emptied several times.

The site's mission

 

The Starlight Tower's website mission (which was voluntary created and is maintained by one of the owners) is to keep informed absent Starlighters of all important issues and events taking place in our property. Is nourished continuously with fresh information generously provided by resident fellow Starlighters and not only offers a private meeting place for owners but is helpful to the public regarding local events taking place in our town St. Pete Beach Pinellas County Florida as well as attractions, accommodations and places of interest to families, couples and  individuals.

 

Please e-mail your textual and multimedia materials for inclusion in our website to Louisa Simos:

webmaster@starlight-tower.com

The River Rock covering is about a half-inch thick. After it is broken up, the material is wheel barrowed down to the dumpster.

Here’s Victor Romero, of Gulfcoast Waterproofing, who obligingly allowed me to take his picture and explained what he is doing. He has worked for his company for twelve years and expressed his admiration for the construction of our great old building. But new techniques and new materials (my words, not his) will help insure the integrity of the structure for many years to come.

So….the project continues apace. Living here is not impossible at all, although there is considerable gritty dust. And the workmen are all very accommodating and helpful.

 

 

Now on to other matters...

  • The Owners meeting on May 15 saw the passing of two amendments to our documents, allowing a more convenient method of voting on proposed changes to our By-Laws and Lease Provisions.
     

  • The proposal to place a fence on our seawall has gone to City Hall for Variance consideration.
     

  • The Board has approved purchase of new lights for the building and grounds, to be installed after the rehab is finished.
     

  • Here’s a look at a sample of the railing that will be installed on all the walkways….chalk white.

  • Parking spot #16 is now assigned to Unit 703, and #21 is now assigned for Unit 106 (the guest apartment).
     

  • Christy and Tim’s summer hours are 8 to 2.
