Around the site, things are looking more and more complete. Brick pavers continue to be laid in the parking lot. We are installing mahogany and glass doors and finishing work on porches and exterior caulking. Ceramic tile are being installed in the lobbies and the stairs, along with ceiling tile and interior finishes.

It seems the letter “P” has take over this week at the Preserve: Porches, Painting and Pergola parking lot. The New Orleans-style building is taking it’s final shape as we add featured porches and wrought iron accents. The back parking lot is coming together with the brick columns that will soon support arches of greenery.
With US Steel’s help, we located this plaque from a 1900’s circa building and mounted it above the entrance to their new building. It pays homage to Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad, formed in 1852 as one of the nation’s largest producers of steel. TCI merged with US Steel in 1907 and became the real estate division. The Preserve community is USS Realty’s most recent development, and this building will serve as their headquarters.
Our work is progressing as scheduled on all aspects of the project. Progress has been made from the exterior masonry, to the entrance where there will be a wrought iron door to the interior mechanical systems.
Other milestones include:
- Transformer pad installed.
- Work beginning on parking lot across the street.
- Concrete poured for parallel parking spaces.
