One Step Back, Two Steps Forward

Let me put your minds at ease, I have not abandoned this blog or my project.  I started to write this post many times over the last month, but most were unproductive diatribes on those responsible for our delays.   While we are 60+ days behind schedule, I actually am impressed when I look back and realize this all started with an idea on July 20th, 2009 (check out "Looking in the Rear View Mirror at 90MPH" for more historical detail), that equates to just a little over nine months to where we are today.

Since my last post we have completed the mechanical design, including a new solar power/HVAC system (third one is a charm, more in a future post) closed the land deal and completed all drawings and applications for the NYC Department of Buildings.  It is our hope that given the level of detail and adherence to zoning and code, we will obtain our permits in 45-60 days.  We will keep our fingers crossed.

Here are a few detailed drawing submitted this week, they are from over thirty submitted.

This weekend, Garrison Archtects will be showing at the 8th annual BKLYN DESIGNS™ show, which will be held May 7 – 9, 2010, at St. Ann’s Warehouse, 38 Water Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn.  They will be featuring the designs and technology of Redhook Green, hope to see you there.

Thanks again for your interest.  Jay
