Resisting the trends that their parents followed when they moved out to the suburbs, today’s young adults are choosing to live in urban centers where they have a wealth of entertainment and employment options at their fingertips. In Seattle, Holland Partner Group is providing these young urbanites with a hip and attractive new option for living in the city’s core in the form of Premier on Pine. 

Boasting a number of high-class amenities and contemporary finishes, Premier on Pine brings a taste of the type of urban living long enjoyed in Manhattan and Los Angeles to the heart of downtown Seattle. The project has already received a great deal of attention from the industry as well as prospective buyers. Thanks to the expertise and savvy of Holland Partner Group, Premier on Pine is shaping up to be a major addition to the skyline of Seattle. 

Located in the heart of Miami’s upscale Brickell neighborhood, the Le Parc at Brickell development represents more than a new, eco-friendly addition to the city’s skyline. It’s also another representation of the high-quality work performed on a regular basis by The Facchina Group of Companies, and specifically Facchina Construction of Florida. Senior Project Manager Joaquin Puig says the project will bring a whole new way for Miami residents to live, work and play by the time it is completed in winter 2015.

The $65 million Kent Place luxury apartment complex in Englewood, Colo., is on track for a substantial completion and final unit turnovers in February 2015 for one main reason. “This project is a success because of the dedicated individuals we have working on the site and in the office, each day,” says Christopher Phelan, senior project manager for general contractor Colorado Structures Inc. (CSI). “This is truly a team effort.”

Phelan credits the work of several project team members – including architects Nicole Williams, Cindy Harvey and Bobby Long of Kephart Architects – with the project’s unique design and successful fast-tracked construction schedule. 

The June 2013 collapse of a building under demolition at 22nd and Market streets in Philadelphia onto an adjacent Salvation Army store had a long-reaching impact on the city’s construction industry. 

Lawsuits, investigations and intense public scrutiny followed the accident, which killed six people and injured 14. One of the incident’s most immediate effects was the city’s passage of legislation that made it much more difficult to obtain demolition permits. The new laws required demolition contractors to establish their qualifications and prohibited the use of heavy machinery to demolish buildings adjacent to occupied structures. 

Since its start 60 years ago, Chief Construction Co. has stayed strong by following a successful formula, Project Manager Jim Fiala says. “You don’t stay in business that long unless you stand behind [your work] and you have the initial quality that customers are expecting,” he says.

The company is bringing this level of quality to The Village at Skyline Pines, a $22.4 million, assisted-living project in Rapid City, S.D. When finished, the three-story building will cover nearly 107,000 square feet with 114 living units.

It stands as one building, but the Monarc at Met 3 is the result of many components coming together. First, there’s the Whole Foods being developed by MBM with underground parking and foundations reaching 23 feet below ground. On top of the Whole Foods, MBM also is building three levels of parking. Next comes another eight levels of parking being built for the 32-story residential tower that will crown the entire structure. The downtown Miami residential high-rise is being developed by ZOM Inc., a leading luxury multifamily real estate developer with offices in Florida, Texas and Washington, D.C. 

Construction kicked off in February for Azalea Court in Houston, an eight-floor midrise with 344 units. It is scheduled for initial occupancy in spring 2015. The next phase of the project entails the construction of a 17-story tower with 301 units.

Azalea Court is located on more than 11 acres in the desirable River Oaks neighborhood of Houston, home to exclusive real estate and mansions. It is in the “inner loop” adjacent to Highland Village on elite Westheimer Road, in the so-called “socialite sector” of Houston. River Oaks is one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the nation with real estate values ranging from $1 million to more than $20 million. It is also a booming area for development.

Radnor Property Group prides itself on the partnerships it forms with institutions working with them as a real estate developer. The 3737 Chestnut Apartments and the Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral project exemplifies those traits as the income stream from the apartments will help maintain the cathedral’s historic structure and expand its social services to the community. 

Dave Yeager, president of the Wayne, Pa.-based company, says the partnership came about because the Episcopal Cathedral was struggling with stagnant revenues and needed assistance in figuring out how it could expand its mission works throughout the community.
