From the Dirt Comes a Mudhouse
Preparations are under way for Mudhouse Coffee Roasters to take residence next to Peloton Station. Martin Horn carried out the demolition of the previous structure (minus one or two walls) for an almost complete re-build. Adjacent to the future Mudhouse will be a second retail space, while above will lay a roof-top patio and two floors of apartments, with the building total square footage coming to nearly 10,000 SF.
Although the architect and engineer are still finalizing the design, the site permit for the building has been approved by the City, according to Project Manager Barbara Regester.
The concrete slab for the second story was poured earlier this week and today, our crew is waterproofing and preparing the area for framing, all while fighting the rainy weather. In addition to our own field staff, we have workers from Piedmont Plumbing assisting with all of the building’s plumbing details. The crew has to work together, coordinating all phases of the work, due to not only the limited space of the site, but also because Peloton Station (another recently-completed Martin Horn project) shares an adjoining wall with the new building. Project Manager Barbara Regester has been mindful of this tight site and has taken measures to prevent and/or limit the disturbance to the already-popular new restaurant and bike repair shop.
Despite these challenges, the field team is enthusiastic about the project. Superintendent John Painter told us, “I’ve found that we are managing quite well, and are hoping for a few solid weeks of good weather to top it off!”
The hand-off to the owners of the Mudhouse is anticipated for early February 2019.
