Canopy at Mill District achieved a major milestone last month, with all three buildings officially completing all work related to concrete and steel. This means subcontracting work on the three buildings will shift to exterior & interior framing, drywall, windows, and doors.
The latest phase of construction on the three buildings that comprise Canopy: Framing exteriors and interiors alike. For the building exteriors, this means drywall, waterproofing, windows, and sliding doors.
Our next milestone, which should begin on the southernmost building (we call Building C) before the end of June, is a major step in the construction process that is beginning to give homeowners and passersby a good sense of what the first residences (we call Canopy) of Mill District will look like.
One thing stands out above all else this month at Mill District: structural steel, and lots and lots of it. Over the course of the month of April, crews have put into place all the steel for Building C, the southernmost building of the three buildings that comprise Canopy, the first residential offering at Mill District.
Look skyward and you’ll see evidence of perhaps the most notable development in the Mill District neighborhood over the last month: cranes.
While Northern California inches closer to spring, the first buildings of Mill District continue to rise from the ground and take shape. Currently, the focus is on what crews are calling “concrete cores.”
Big things are rising from the site at Mill District, as crews kicked off 2023 by going vertical on Canopy – our first phase of market-rate residences. Earlier this month, crews started pouring concrete for elevator shafts and stairwells in the southernmost of the Canopy buildings.
The year 2022 was a big deal for Mill District. We broke ground on Canopy, demo’d the last of the old mill buildings on the site, started selling residences and welcoming homeowners, and inspired the largest freeway processional of cement mixers Sonoma County has seen in some time.
We are near completion of the subterranean garage and foundation on the first buildings of the neighborhood. This month crews have been working diligently to finish the walls of the bottom level and prepare the supports for what we’re calling the “podium,” the concrete lid that will serve as the floor on which we will build the residences that comprise Canopy.
Canopy, the first phase of our new neighborhood, is almost ready to go vertical. That’s the takeaway from a busy month at the job site—work that included reinforcing walls and pouring the final 800 yards of concrete for a subterranean garage that will double as the building’s foundation.
