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.
We are making tremendous progress at Mill District with our first phase of residential construction well underway. Next up: A whole lot of concrete to create the foundational slab and ground-floor walls.
As subterranean work continues at Canopy, the luxury residences that will rise behind the ring of redwood trees along Healdsburg Avenue, crews are getting ready to install rebar—the steel rods that go inside the floor and walls that form the foundations of the buildings.
Things are going down at the Mill District site and we mean that literally. Earlier this month our crews started excavating dirt to create the subterranean footprint for our Canopy buildings.
After years of preparations, construction on Mill District, Healdsburg’s newest neighborhood, officially began this month with excavation for the underground parking areas. We have kicked off with two new players in mission-critical roles: a new director of design and construction to oversee and monitor day-to-day progress, and a new general contractor to get the work done.
The Flats comprise the greatest number of residences we’re building at Canopy, the first phase of residential at Mill District, and we’ve just released new renderings that give homeowners and potential neighbors an idea of how spectacular we think they will be.
Swing by the Mill District site these days and all may seem quiet at one end, at the other end we continue to build The Exchange. In the coming weeks, at the north end, large-scale construction will begin, and our new neighborhood will begin to take shape quickly.
