Bad news on Driveway

This message from CYP…

We’ve spoken to the construction team today about the works to construct the new Botanica driveway. Based on the current progress and the forecast of rain every day next week – it unfortunately means that the Botanica driveway is going to be closed for longer than anticipated.

While it’s difficult to determine progress, based on the forecast rain next week, our current estimation is that access will be reinstated at 5pm Saturday 8 June. 

Behind the scenes we’re making every effort to reopen the driveway sooner than this date if possible. Tomorrow (Sat 1 June) we’ll be extending our work hours to 6pm to work on the driveway.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused by this delay. The ACE Parking passes are still valid until 19 June.

If you have any further questions, please reply to this email or call us on 1800 105 105.

CYP at The Botanica on Wednesday

CYP will be in the lobby from around 4:30pm – 6:30pm.

They are there to explain, amongst other matters…

  • Why the world’s ugliest scaffolding must remain for another 3 months
  • Why the lower car park will be closed for an entire week
  • Alternative safe parking arrangements
  • Noise levels for impending works
  • How access to and from lower car park to St Kilda Rd will work longer term
  • Anything else you want to know

Please come along

Wear your sunglasses at night

That’s right, when you exit the building at night now, you may need to wear your sunglasses. After more meetings that I care to think about, CYP have agreed that they cannot get sufficient numbers of their 28 solar powered lights to work…they have installed AC powered lights

The photo above is a night time shot!! The power is coming from our mains but CYP have agreed to pay that bill.

Thanks Kate Walshe for making this happen.

For those of you that are too young to understand the headline….watch this clip

Survey results

See attached a copy of the full survey results.

A number of issues have already been discussed with CYP – especially the need to wash the building.

Some building specific ones are being addressed, like use of balconies…more to come

Here is a comparison between this year and previous years

Thanks to everyone who took part, feedback welcome. Those who did not complete the survey are expected to pay for all lift rides next week…just kidding.

Lower car park CLOSURE

You should have something in your letterbox but be warned – the lower car park will be closed for an ENTIRE week from Monday May 27!!

I was as surprised as you probably are!

They have plans in place for Ace Parking and will be on site 4:30 pm on Wednesday May 22 to explain in detail
