We are currently working on the subdivision improvements for the cul-de-sac. The large retaining wall and sewer work are complete and we will now begin working on the other utilities. The lot 1 foundation will be poured next week and we hope to also be able to pour the lot 4 piers. The rain has been a setback on the project, but we are hoping with a short break in the weather next week, we can make significant progress.

On Aron Court, we are pushing ahead on the construction of the cul-de-sac with pier wholes drilled, rebar laid, and underground utilites continuing to make progress. We are looking forward to completing the large retaining wall along the cul-de-sac next week, before proceeding forward with the sidewalk and adjacent reaining wall. The piers for Lot 1's foundation are drilled, the inslab plumbing is complete, and we will be getting inspection next week in order to pour the first floor slab.
We are well underway with the new cul-de-sac construction. We have constructed the large retaining wall that is on the uphill side of Talbyrn and have also completed the new sewer manhole construction. We will be working on installing utilities next for the cul-de-sac construction. The four homes are ready for foundation. We are currently working on lots number one and two, and then will be moving on to lots three and four. The foundation contractor, plumber, and framer will be working on the site simultaneously to make as much progress as possible.
We are waiting on the city of Belmont for the final signed paperwork in order for us to record the final parcel map with the county. We are also finalizing the design specifications in order to complete the marketing materials, and will soon be bringing the lots to market one by one. Please let us know if you know anyone who may be interested in buying or wants more information on any of the four homes.
Demolition is now complete and tree removal has finished. We are working closely with the City of Belmont to record our Final Parcel Map and Grading Permit so we can begin grading work.
The Final Map was approved by City Council this week. We are now working towards completing the requirements to pull the subdivision improvement plans and to record the Final Map with the County of San Mateo. We are actively researching cost savings related to the structure of the four homes and are working tightly with contractors to solidify bids.
Our City Council meeting is now scheduled for April 10th, at 7pm at the City of Belmont. This meeting is to officially record the final parcel map, approve the 3-way stop sign, adopt the name change to "Aron Court", and to vacate the Right of Way required to construct the new cul-de-sac. Demolition of the existing structure and tree's is scheduled for April 4th in prepartion to begin subdivision improvement work as soon we get City Council Approval.
The Subdivision Improvement Plans and Final Parcel Map have been approved by the City of Belmont. We are currently awaiting our Lot 1 and Lot 4 Building Permit comments. We will be resubmitting Lot 2 and Lot 3 this week. The City of Belmont has a grading moratorium until April 15th. We will be working with the City of Belmont, in collaboration with our contractors, to see what work, if any, we can proceed with prior to that date.
The subdivision and site improvement plans are currently being reviewed by Public Works. Once the plans have been approved, we will begin the process of pulling the encroachment permits and getting our bonding in place for the work that is required in the public right of way. There is a grading moritorium in place until April which will greatly diminish the amount of work we are able to proceed with.
We have reviewed the Subdivision Improvement and Final Map plans with the plan checker to ensure all comments are addressed. We will be formally submitting this week. In addition, we will be resubmitting Lot 1 and Lot 4 building comments this week. Lot 2 and Lot 3 comments we are anticipating this week.
We have now compiled responses and documents to all of the comments as they relate to the Subdivision Improvement and Final Map. We will be attempting to set up a time next week to sit down with the plan checker to ensure we are on the same page with all items prior to formal submission. In addition, we are making good progress on addressing the Building Comments for Lot's 1 and 4. We should be ready to re-submit after the Holiday weekend. We are currently waiting to receive comments from Building Department on Lot's 2 and 3 as they are more complex and were submitted about one week later.
We have received comments from our submission to the Building Department for two of the four homes. We anticipate receiving comments on the other two submissions next week sometime. It will take us two weeks to turnaround re-submission to address those comments. As for the Final Map and the Improvement Plan, we are making progress and are working through the final requirements from the City of Belmont.
All four lots have now been submitted to the Building Department. We are also in communication with Contractors in order to collect proposals now that we have structural plans. We are also working to finalize our Subdivision Improvement Plans and Final Parcel Map.
Two of the four homes are currently in their second week of Building Plan check. The other two homes Building Permit submission are prepared and are ready to submit this week. With with full package together, the objective will be to send it out to trades for bid over the coming weeks concurrent to plan review.
We have started our first construction activities with abatement on the existing structure's hazardous material. This is a predecessor to complete demolition. As for the permit submissions, two of the four homes were submitted to the Building Department on Friday of last week. We are working on complete the other two packages for submission to Building late this week or beginning of next. We are still ironing out the last of the comments for the Site Improvement and Final Parcel Map prior to formal resubmission.
We are nearing completion on two of the four building permit submissions. The reason for offset in timing has to do with the severe grade of the two remaining plan sets which adds to the complexity of the design. We are also spending a great deal of time preparing for the Site Improvement and Final Parcel Map packages. By working upfront with all parties, we are hoping to eliminate any possible comments prior to re-submitting and wasting costly time waiting for comments. Also, for anyone interested in watching the presentation to the Planning Commission that we had earlier this month, the video and minutes have been added to the following link: Planning Commission Meeting 09/05.
Now that we have planning commission approval, the next three large milestones will be to obtain our Site Development permit and Final Parcel Map, and submit to the Building Department for the individual homes. We are pushing to submit to Building in the next two weeks and are working with our consultants to wrap up the last of the comments remaining for the Site and Final Parcel Map.
We are working with the Civil Engineer on what we hope to be the last of the submittals to Belmont in order to obtain the Site Development permit. The Site Development work includes the construction of the new cul-de-sac, drive path, sidewalks, curbs, and utilities. Our goal will be to commence this work as soon as possible so we can jump into the construction of the 4 homes as soon as we have approval from Planning and Building Department. As mentioned in previous updates, the Planning Commissioning meeting is scheduled for tomorrow evening at the City of Belmont. Our goal for this meeting will be for the Commissioners to approve the project so we can move on to Building Department submission. I have attached some snapshots of our presentation for you to take a look at.
Our Planning Commissioning date of 09/05 has been confirmed. For anyone, especially those who live in the Belmont Community, who would like to come out and show their support, it would be greatly appreciated! We are hoping to have our homes be the first on the agenda at 7pm. We have also been working closely with the Structural Engineer over the last week for design development of the structural plans.
We are currently working with the Design Team to finalize the Planning Commission presentation. We have a tentative date of September 5th for the hearing on all four homes in Belmont. We are working with the Structural Engineering team on a Design-Build approach to ensure that the proposed foundation designs are aligning with our budget. I have included a preview of some renderings that we will be using for presentation purposes.
We are awaiting confirmation for our public hearing date on all four homes. In the meantime, we are working with the design team in order to prepare the Building Permit package.
We have received preliminary feedback from the Planning Department that two of the four lots have gained staff support. We will be working with the City of Belmont towards the beginning part of next week to address their concerns on the other two properties. Our goal will be to submit all four lots at the end of next week for what we hope will be the final submittal for Planning. Once that is complete, we will be put on the schedule for Planning Commission meeting.
We have resubmitted three of the homes to Planning. The fourth home, we have been going back and forth with Belmont to ensure that what we are re-submitting gains their support. The topography of the site makes conforming to their general guidelines quite difficult but our team is working diligently to make it happen. We just received the second round of comments on our Final Parcel Map and are expecting Site Improvement comments early next week. We are also concurrently working toward the demolition permit so we can hit the ground running once we have the Site Improvement permit.
Over the last few weeks, our primary focus has been to ensure that we are in the best shape possible going into our Planning Commission meetings. This includes completing neighborhood outreach as required as part of the public process and also having multiple meetings with the Planning Department to ensure we have their full support. We are also working to secure a demo permit and to begin Site Improvement work concurrent to Planning feedback.
We have received comments from Public Works and Planning on our first round submissions. All in all, they were relatively minor comments and our design team is currently working to implement the City of Belmont's comments. We are going to be resubmitting to Public Works documents early next week and Planning towards the end of next week.
We received Public Work comments last week and are working to address them. We are anticipating getting Planning comments over the next couple weeks for all four homes.
Our consultants have been working hard in preparation to submit all four lots for Planning review next week. We have also begun speaking with contractors and vendors in order to value engineer the design.
For this project, we are using an Integrated Project Delivery approach- where all consultants are involved from the first design iteration in order to expedite the design process as much as possible. The tight coordination has been paying dividends in the form of delivering some very promising conceptual designs. We are working to finalize all building footprints and floor plans, while considering Structural and Civil conditions, prior to completing design development. We are hoping to formally submit to the planning department next week.
Talbryn pre-construction is in full swing. We are preparing to submit the Final Parcel Map towards the end of this week. We are simultaneously working on the Architectural design, Arborist report, and Soils Engineering. We have included the conceptual design of the homes below, enjoy!
