The Allendale is a mixed population 12-story highrise development located on 2.7 acres in the Edmondson Village neighborhood. The project scope included the renovation of 164 one-bedroom units. The work inside the apartment units took place in phases, and the apartment units being renovated were not be occupied. Tenants were still in the building during the renovations, so detailed coordination between the property manager, Harkins, subcontractors, and the tenants was vitally important. Apartment renovations included new flooring, a fresh coat of paint, new fan coil units, electrical and plumbing upgrades, and a full kitchen upgrade with new appliances, cabinets, and countertops.
Building renovation work included restoring and sealing the current brick for waterproofing, installing a new roof, and constructing a new canopy over the entry and vestibule. The first floor common areas were also renovated. New acoustical ceiling tiles were added over the entryway, mail room, and offices. The current mail room was reconfigured and reconstructed, and the community room was expanded to contain a full kitchen. An exercise room was added on the second floor.
Site renovation included reworking some of the concrete sidewalks, adding handicapped parking to comply with ADA regulations, and landscaping.
