Construction begins at Las Flores affordable housing community

first_imgHomeFeaturedConstruction begins at Las Flores affordable housing community Feb. 04, 2021 at 6:00 amFeaturedHousingNewsConstruction begins at Las Flores affordable housing communityClara Harter4 months agoaffordable housingcommunity corporation of santa monicaDE Architectslas florespicoR.D. Olson Construction began last week on the Las Flores housing project — a sleek and environmentally friendly building set to bring 73 affordable housing units to the Pico Neighborhood.The 94,000-square-foot project is located at 1834 14th Street and led by the Community Corporation of Santa Monica in partnership with R.D. Olson Construction and DE Architects.The building, which is slated to open in fall 2022, will offer 35 one-bedroom, 19 two-bedroom and 19 three-bedroom units alongside an underground parking lot, playground, exterior decks, garden space, and community rooms.It is designed with both beauty and the environment in mind. The building will meet LEED Platinum standards and incorporate solar panels and recycled materials in its construction.“We’re attempting to make it a zero net energy project, so there won’t be any gas in the building — it will be all electric,” said Community Corporation of Santa Monica Executive Director, Tara Barauskas. “We focus a lot on wellness and health. We want to make sure that we’re not using VOCs inside the unit, so there is good indoor air quality.”The environmental features and Covid-19 safety protocols add several challenges to the construction process.The sustainable outdoor skin requires a tactful blending of four different material types, while the stormwater filtration system requires a special tank be installed within the concrete structure.Factory shutdowns due to Covid-19 have limited the supply of building materials and at times driven up costs. Construction companies also need to ensure that they have adequate supplies of PPE and develop strict protocols for staff working on the interior of buildings.Despite these challenges, President of R.D. Olson Construction Bill Wilhelm said the team is well up to the task.“One thing I will say is I’m very proud of my company because we run a very tight ship on safety and truly practice safety protocol,” said Wilhelm. “We want everyone who goes to our job sites to return home the same way they left in the morning.”Rents in Las Flores will range from $600 to $1,400 a month with housing priority given to people facing no fault evictions and people who live or work in Santa Monica.The project benefits from AB 1763, which exempts affordable housing projects from certain zoning limits. This allowed CCSM to add an additional floor to the original design, creating 73 units as opposed to the proposed 55.The building will contribute to CCSM’s existing stock of over 1,800 affordable housing units, helping more essential workers live in Santa Monica and allowing more families to benefit from the high quality public schools.“Affordable housing benefits the whole community,” said Barauskas. “If you put housing near jobs people won’t have to commute as far and it will free up traffic congestion and improve air quality. Affordable housing in affluent neighborhoods like Santa Monica creates diverse and inclusive communities.”Barauskas said that CCSM’s projects also benefit the community by transforming dilapidated properties into beautiful and sustainable buildings. In this instance, the Las Flores community is built on a parcel of land formerly occupied by an old warehouse and a dog grooming salon.“Some people say ‘I don’t want affordable housing in my neighborhood’, and I think this comes from a misunderstanding of what affordable housing really is,” said Wilhelm. “If you study the architectural designs, you’ll see these are not cheap properties that are going to degrade, but absolutely beautiful buildings.”[email protected] :affordable housingcommunity corporation of santa monicaDE Architectslas florespicoR.D.

Citing traffic, light and noise, Lenexa council rejects proposed QuikTrip at 95th and Noland

first_imgA rendering of the proposed QuikTrip project denied by the Lenexa council.The Lenexa City Council shut off the pump on a proposed new QuikTrip store at the northeast corner of 95th Street and Noland Road, citing ongoing concerns about anticipated negative effects on the adjacent residential neighborhood from excessive traffic, light and noise.At its Tuesday meeting, the council rejected a proposed ordinance to rezone the property to allow the convenience store; a proposed ordinance for a special use permit to allow gasoline sales on the property; and a preliminary plan for the store. Ward 2 Councilman Thomas Nolte cast the lone vote in favor of the store. Ward 3 Councilman Dan Roh was absent.Neighbors were concerned that the plans for a QuikTrip on the site would bring light and noise pollution. Photo credit Johnson County Appraiser’s Office.The new QuikTrip would have replaced and doubled the size of JB’s One Stop at 95th and Noland. At its July 3 meeting, the council voted unanimously to return a revised proposal for the new store to the Lenexa Planning Commission, which recommended denial of another amended plan at its Aug. 6 meeting. The planning commission had also recommended denial of an earlier plan at its June 4 meeting.Shannon Marcano, a lawyer with Local Law LLC who represents QuikTrip, made a presentation to the council describing the concessions the company had made in its amended applications and citing the benefits the store would have on the area, including increased tax revenue.Jim Briuer, who co-owns JB’s One Stop with his wife, Linda Briuer, also addressed the council. They have owned JB’s for more than 30 years, he said, but decided to sell it because of his poor health.“When first approached by QuikTrip to purchase our property, both Linda and I agreed: Who better to turn our loyal customers over to (than) QuikTrip?” Briuer said. “As a competitor of QuikTrip for many years, I gained a huge appreciation of the quality of their operation…Turning our long-operation business over to QuikTrip provides Linda and me with the sense that we’re doing good by Lenexa and the greater community…We cannot stand any longer to allow a few neighbors to keep QuikTrip from continuing our legacy…This is the right thing for us and the right thing for Lenexa.”Lenexa resident Joe Quint, whose residential property abuts the site of the proposed store, also made a presentation to the council. It included photos of himself, his wife and their children, and photos and maps of his property relative to the proposed store’s site.“It’s very close to my house,” Quint said. “We will actually see 100 percent of the traffic, despite what they say. … We’ll see 100 percent of those (vehicles’) lights.”Quint said that he liked and frequented QuikTrip stores but added that, because they’re “very well lit…you can see them from a mile away.” He also cited in his presentation’s visuals other reasons for concern about having the store so close to his property, including a “greater crime vector” and “loud talking, lurking, substantially higher danger for my and other neighborhood children, abduction, fights and foul language.”“Would you want your children to be playing in my backyard, or grandchildren?” Quint said.Ward 4 Councilman Andy Huckaba said the proposed store “feels like a misfit for a number of reasons.”“I’m challenged by the impact on the neighborhood,” Huckaba said. “I’m challenged by the traffic that’s there right now, and I see that nearly every day as I go past that area. It’s a challenging intersection, Noland and 95th, and cars back up often there … and I can only see that increasing in the scenario with this particular application.”Nolte disagreed that a new QuikTrip at the site would necessarily attract extra traffic.“They live off the traffic that’s already there,” he said, adding that QuikTrip “set(s) the price for gasoline, and they set the standard for service.”last_img read more

Fungal meningitis outbreak cases top 300

first_img In 2004 pharmacists in Iowa and Wisconsin told the board that NECC and Cadden, its chief pharmacist, were soliciting out-of-state prescriptions for office use and using an unapproved form, according to the Reuters story. In the same year a Texas pharmacist aired complaints about other products marketed by Cadden. In a separate letter to Cadden’s attorney, the House committee raised concerns about other inspections in 2002 and 2003 that stemmed from an adverse medical event report related to the type of steroid that has been recalled in the current outbreak. Yesterday the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) posted new lists of customers who received the recalled steroids from NECC, but it found some technical problems with them and has taken them down. The FDA said it is working to correct the lists and will repost them when the agency can ensure that it is accurate. A congressional committee has also launched a probe of the company. Yesterday the House Energy and Commerce Committee sent a letter to NECC and one of its former owners requesting documents related to the current outbreak and some relating to other investigations that have centered on NECC and related business operations, the committee said in a statement yesterday. When the FDA released the lists yesterday it said the information was from NECC and it couldn’t guarantee its accuracy and completeness, but it was making it available as a way to inform facilities and providers who received recalled shipments. In the letter, they said the patient safety issues are critical, especially since VA medical centers purchased products from NECC and a related company, Ameridose. See also: “Over 250 American patients have become ill including 20 that have died because of contaminated medical products from this one compounding facility,” DeLauro and Bishop wrote. “This type of outbreak should be preventable, and we would hope that private insurance companies will take similar steps to protect their patients.” The new cases push the outbreak total to 308, but no new deaths were reported, the CDC said. Seventeen states are now affected. Besides back pain, the recalled methylprednisolone acetate injections were also used to treat joint problems, and the CDC reported one more joint infection, raising that total to 4. So far no deaths have been attributed to the joint infections. Committee members also raised concerns about how NECC was able to continue distributing bulk supplies of the steroid. In earlier reports, Massachusetts officials said NECC appeared to be operating outside the scope of its license in distributing the steroids. Oct 22 House Energy and Commerce Committee letters In other developments, Reuters reported that documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) suggest that the company avoided harsh punishment by regulators in earlier investigations, with problems stretching back to 1999. The committee said it asked Barry Cadden, NECC’s former owner, president, and director of pharmacy, for related documents from his personal e-mail account, after Cadden’s attorney told the committee that Cadden would not comply with its Oct 11 request for outbreak briefings. Oct 23 CDC fungal meningitis outbreak update According to today’s report from Reuters, the Massachusetts pharmacy board in 2004 recommended a 3-year sanction against the company for violating accepted standards for compounding methylprednisolone acetate, the same drug linked to the current outbreak. However, the following year the board agreed to a nondisciplinary settlement, according to Reuters. In other developments, two members of Congress sent a letter to federal health officials on Oct 19 asking them to protect seniors, veterans, and other patients by ensuring the safety of compounded medications, according to an Oct 19 statement from Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn. The letter, also signed by Rep. Sanford Bishop, D-Ga., was sent to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary Eric Shinseki. The steroid drug came from New England Compounding Center (NECC) in Framingham, Mass., which is under investigation by federal and state authorities. Oct 23 Reuters story “While we are disappointed that neither you nor anyone else from the NECC could make themselves available to brief committee staff, the committee must proceed with the investigation. We expect that you will cooperate in this matter,” the committee said in its letter. NECC said in a statement yesterday that it has worked with the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Pharmacy to resolve any problems that have been brought to the agency’s attention, Reuters reported. Oct 22 House Energy and Commerce committee statement Oct 22 FDA statement Oct 23, 2012 (CIDRAP News) – Eleven more cases were reported in a multistate fungal meningitis outbreak linked to contaminated steroid injections, including the first patient from Georgia, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported today.last_img read more

IDA partners with BizClim to host stakeholder forum

first_imgThe Invest Dominica Authority (IDA), with the support of the ACP Business Climate Facility (BizClim), is organizing a 2-day Stakeholder Forum which will take place at the Fort Young Hotel in Roseau on 5-6 August 2014. The objective of the Stakeholder Forum will be to explore the feasibility of establishing a national venture capital (VC) fund in the Commonwealth of Dominica—and a parallel fundraising platform for the Eastern Caribbean region—to facilitate access to early-stage equity financing by small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and aspiring entrepreneurs. The ACP Business Climate facility (BizClim), a programme of the ACP Secretariat financed by the European Union under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF), aims at fostering a business-enabling environment in ACP countries and regions by improving legislation, institutional frameworks and financial measures relating to the enabling environment of the private sector.The Forum will be attended by approximately 60 distinguished stakeholders, including representatives of business and industry associations, financial institutions, local SMEs and entrepreneurs, as well as intergovernmental organizations, such as the Organisation of the Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) and the European Investment Bank (EIB).Efforts at increased diversification of Dominica’s economy have been pursued through various initiatives, including the provision of tax and profit repatriation incentives to foreign companies, waiver of import duties on select equipment, streamlining of licensing procedures and by othermeans. These initiatives have contributed to a notable expansion of Dominica’s ecotourism sector, successful development of an offshore medical education sector, attraction of a considerable number of Internet businesses and growth of the ICT sector. Despite these achievements, however, there is critical need for SMEs and entrepreneurs to have access to much needed financing for business expansion and day-to-day operations.With these considerations at the forefront, IDA—with the support of BizClim—is currently undertaking a project to augment the Dominican Government’s ongoing reform programmes and contribute to improvements in the overall business and investment climate.The project aims to support the Dominican Government’s ongoing restructuring and diversification efforts by addressing one of the chief obstacles faced by country’s businesses and entrepreneurs―access to finance. The specific goal of the intervention is to explore the viability of, and the prerequisites for, establishing alternative mechanisms for access to capital in Dominica and the broader region―in particular by SMEs―in the form of a national venture capital fund and a regional fundraising platform.The Invest Dominica Authority is the focal Government Agency responsible for promoting and facilitating investment in tourism and industrial activities in the Commonwealth of Dominica. Its mandate is to actively pursue all sustainable investments—both domestic and foreign—and to provide the necessary facilitation services from the beginning to the end of the investment process.
