Welcome to Park Laurel

COVID-19 Message

The Board of Directors and Management have been working closely to ensure that we are taking necessary actions during these challenging times. The health and safety of our residents and staff are paramount to all else, and we appreciate your confidence while we make some adjustments at Park Laurel.

It was recommended to the Board that the Association’s amenities be closed immediately to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This comes at the advice of those we rely on, and in following suit with many of the other condo communities around town. Effective immediately, our amenities will be closed for three weeks, at which time the Board will re-evaluate the situation. This includes the Fitness Center, Pilates Room, Pool Deck and barbecues, and the Prado Room.

With the modernization underway for the last set of elevators, we realize that there will be heavier traffic in the service elevators. The Association will be holding off on the approval of any new and unnecessary construction in the residential units. If you have a question or concern about something that you have pending, please contact Ryan. Housekeepers will still be permitted to clean the units, but anything out of the ordinary will need to be approved by the General Manager.

To ensure that individuals are maintaining a six-foot separation as proposed by the CDC, we recommend that only one household take an elevator at a time.

You may have noticed some additional precautions that are being taken by the Association to protect our residents and staff. This includes a six-foot barrier around the front desk with a table that packages can be set on. A request was also sent by Management last week about making calls or emails to the staff unless you absolutely have to come down for something. Our Front Desk is also offering to place your package on the elevator and send it up to prevent you from having to come down and make any contact with anyone. Please take advantage of these services when you can.

Our Management Team, including those onsite and those at Action Property Management, have developed an emergency response plan specific to Park Laurel in the event that we see a “stay in place” order like what is taking place in San Francisco this week. This plan includes providing “essential” services.

Many household cleaning supplies, including Lysol, Clorox, and toilet paper products are no longer available at the store or online. The Association has enough supplies to hold us over for over a month, and we are ordering more supplies as we use them in case products are backordered.

Our partners at Waxie Janitorial have been instrumental in providing us with concentrated products that can be diluted onsite, including hospital-grade cleaners. You may notice some of the products are less fragrant, but they are significantly more powerful. Our housekeeping staff is working increasingly hard to sanitize surfaces, including door handles, railings, elevator buttons, and bathrooms throughout the day.

During this time, we realize that you may not be able to obtain toilet paper and an essential household item. If you need a roll, please contact Ryan, and depending on our stock of supplies, we may be able to provide you with a roll (at a cost). Please refrain from flushing other items like paper towels or wet wipes down the toilet as that will cause clogs in the waste lines.

Lastly, we realize that some of our residents may need assistance with things like groceries or meals, or just someone to check-in on them. If you find yourself in this position, please know that there are residents at Park Laurel who have expressed their willingness to assist. Please contact Ryan if there is something that you need help with.  

We thank you for your confidence, especially during these difficult times, and look forward to the day when we can return to normalcy.

Sincerely,

The Board of Directors

Park Laurel Owners Association

February 7th Community Updates

We hope that you had a great week! There are a few updates that we have for you this week.

Window Washing Updates

The hard water removal in the North Tower is going really well! The windows are coming out nicely. We are removing all of the hard water stains on the North Tower during this cycle and will remove all of the hard water in the South Tower during the next cleaning in April.

Once all of the windows are cleaned, we will lower the davits on both roofs.

Elevator Updates

The elevator project is going very smoothly. There are a few important dates that we want to let you know about.

  • Friday, March 13th – The elevator cabs for the 01/02 and 05/08 stacks are due back in-service.
  • Friday, March 13th – Both service elevators will be taken out of service for the day for minor adjustments.
  • Monday, March 16th – The elevator cabs for the 03/04 and 06/07 stacks will be taken out of service. mgm
  • Saturday, March 21st – Crane Day. The remainder of the old elevators will be craned off of the roof, and the final set of elevators will be craned up. Fifth Avenue will be closed beginning at 6:00 am.
  • Friday, July 3rd – The elevator cabs for the 03/04 and 06/07 stacks are estimated to be back in service.

The schedule above is subject to changes.

New Fob Readers

The service elevators were the first to receive the updated fob reader from the manufacturer of those devices. The new reader is bulkier than its predecessor.

Some reported that their fobs weren’t reading as quickly as before, and after looking into this issue with the manufacturer, we learned a couple of things.

First, the reader picks up on the regular fobs quickly — no issues with the round or oval fobs.

However, the garage remotes are explicitly modified by the manufacturer for Park Laurel to include a fob inside. It isn’t a standard-issue product and therefore doesn’t operate on the same frequency as the regular fobs. If you are using a garage remote in the service elevator, you will need to hold it up to the center of the reader. The outside edges/corners of the reader will not pick up the garage remotes. After learning this, we tried it and it worked just fine.
