Final on Elevator and Beach work

As scheduled by June 12th all work on elevators and beach re-nourishment was completed. The elevator work went very well with the professionalism of the technicians that stayed the course with their scheduled three floors per day having both cars running by 3pm. They would stay for 30 minutes or so monitoring the operation of the cars.

The beach re-nourishment went even better if you can imagine. They were in front of Atalaya on a Saturday morning as people were departing and by Sunday morning the beach was open as they were in front of buildings South of us. We have quite a lot of beach for now. Low tide seems like a hike to get to the water now. This will change as storms come to us, but the beautiful thing is that we have beach to sacrifice.

Update on Elevator Repairs/ Beach Re-Nourishment

The work on the elevators is going so well that we decided to move to the North car next. The plan will be the same, and usually by mid to late afternoon the technicians have been releasing the car they have been working on that day to monitor the operation. It's a good opportunity to have work completed before the bulk of owners and guests start coming after schools let out. We anticipate everything to be completed before June 15th.

Also we have heard from County Beach Patrol that the beach re-nourishment is scheduled to be in Garden City / Murrells Inlet, which includes Atalaya Towers the second half of June. Prepare for large pipes and directed walking for a couple of days in front of Atalaya. We need this for upcoming hurricane season, because we can't afford loosing any beach. Beside having a fresh beach it's usually a great time for shell and shark teeth findings.

Elevator Repairs

As planned the materials for the elevator work came in. The schedule for the project appears to be beginning Monday May 20th. The plan remains to have south car shut down during the day while being worked on, and then up and running with the second car at night. They will work on the car until Friday the 24th, then return the day after Memorial Day. If all goes as planned they will be completed by Friday the 31st. Please check this site for all updates.

Projects Update

Our main parking lot re-sealing originally scheduled for Thursday May 2nd has been re-scheduled for Wednesday May 1st due to weather. We will begin reaching out to all occupants beginning with the arrivals on Saturday the 27th. We want this to go well with an empty parking lot allows for quick, and thorough job. Therefore, we need the lot cleared by 3pm Tuesday. Occupants would need to use beach accesses either directly North or South of Atalaya next door buildings to get across the street to parking lot.

April Projects

We have contracted with our elevator company the beginning phase for our elevator update. This involves the replacement of rails and rollers in the hoist ways of the shafts. They will be replacing parts on every floor door. The idea is to have at least one car with new parts going into the summer , and then the other at the end of the season. They will work during the day on one car, obviously running with the other. Then stopping at a good point for the day at night the plan is to have both cars running. This project could run into May.
