Exciting changes continue to take place all around the Silvergate Rancho Bernardo construction site. The last of the scaffolding surrounding the building exteriors is about to come down to reveal the graceful arches and elegant lines of these architecturally distinct new buildings. Set against a backdrop of rolling hills by day and cityscape lights by night, the views from inside each apartment home are sure to be as stunning as the building’s graceful facades. The construction crews, tradesmen and landscape laborers continue to work diligently and continuously to bring the entire project together successfully. Their finishing touches can now be seen in every corner of the campus.
ALL COTTAGE INTERIORS NOW COMPLETE
The new “Kingsgate” model opened at the Cottages for viewing and has been hosting regular Open Houses on Thursday afternoons to both future and prospective residents. Exterior landscape detail has been taking shape this month outside the Cottages now that the interiors are completed and ready for inspection.
FROM THE WEST & EAST WINGS
The interior spaces took great strides forward this month with the first coats of paint being applied to the walls, and cabinetry and millwork being fitted into place in nearly every apartment home. Right in step with the current construction schedule, the over-sized sliding glass doors have been fitted into place in many of the East & West wing apartment homes Application of the lath and stucco were in progress during December on the exterior of the East and West Wing Apartment building.
INSIDE THE CENTRAL CLUB HOUSE
Magnificent in size and sweeping in their arch, the new windows that will overlook the central courtyard have been positioned into place in the Club House. Their massive size will allow morning light to flood the interior space and provide beautiful views to the outside garden areas. Inside, mechanical, electrical and plumbing work has now been completed. Interior drywall installation is also now complete, and painting is well underway.
POOL HOUSE COMPLETED!
Major construction has wrapped up over at the Pool House! Once the finishing coat is applied, all that’s left to be done is to fill the pool and the spa with water. Soon the outdoor Kitchenette, with its refined cabinetry and contemporary light fixtures, will be ready for outdoor get-togethers. You can almost hear the cocktail party conversation at the Silvergate Pool Parties!
RESTAURANT & BISTRO
While only the construction crew can truly appreciate the progress made at The El Castillo Restaurant, everyone agrees the space has become a breathtaking, show-stopper! The mechanical, electrical and plumbing installs are now complete. The commercial kitchen appliances, including the walk-in cooler and freezer, have been installed, which rounds out the major components of the space. While the Chef has not yet been chosen for Silvergate, the meals coming out of this state-of-the-art kitchen are sure to be show-stoppers as well.
MEMORY CARE SUITES COMPLETED!
In the Memory Care Suites, flooring, tile, countertops and doors are now completely installed in both the individual suites and common areas. Beautiful custom-crafted cabinetry has been built into the living room spaces which will house large screen televisions and surround the fireplace. Outside, the stucco application has come to an end and the special storefront glazing was completed.
AROUND THE OUTSIDE
Curbs and gutters in the community are now 90% complete. Street asphalt has been laid on the interior roads and landscape construction crews have already delivered and planted the first phases of major trees and shrubbery. Landscape depressions known as bioretention basins have been filled with specialized rock and materials that will be used to slow and treat storm water runoff on the property. In addition, the sidewalks now line the interior of the project, giving shape to the soon-to-be-completed putting green, bocce court, croquet court and outdoor grilling areas.
