Yale Steam Laundry Board Elected

February 19, 2010

Last night (February 18), Yale Steam Laundry Condominiums and lofts elected their first complete HOA Board. The initial board is a 3 member board. Per the condo by-laws the board can put a vote before the Association to make this a 5 member board.

51% of the owners were represented at the building. Granted 22% of that number is represented by units still owned by the developer, it is a pretty good turn out. 4 residents ran for the 3 vacant spots.

The three positions consist of one board member serving a 3 year term, one serving a 2 year term, and one serving a 1 year term. This will help keep some continuity on the board. Future board members will be elected for 2 year terms.

It’s official. Owners received their letters announcing the first annual meeting to elect the board. Owners also received this email today from the building management. This is good for condo sales in the area.

“On 12/3/09,Yale reached the 75% sold mark, triggering the 90 day countdown for the election of a new Board of Directors and the transfer of control from the developer to the Association.  As a result, the 1st Annual Meeting of the Association will be held on Thursday, February 18th, at 7:00 pm in the lobby.  The meeting notice was mailed to all Yale owners on 1/22/10.  The purpose of the meeting is to elect the 3 members of the Board of Directors.”

I am an Icon. You should live like me.

February 21, 2009

img_2993My condo complex (The Yale) had new signs hung on the building to lure in potential buyers. They read.. Live like an Icon. That says to me, that this place is expensive and I probably don’t want to live there. Of course, since I do live here, I know a few things…

1. It really is not that expensive. In fact, you can probably talk the developer into some great deals right now.

2. The building is great. Good neighbors, awesome gym, cool vibe, and incredible views. The South side of the building has some of the best views of downtown and the monuments that any condo can have. The North side has a view North of the city with a very European vibe and views of National Cathedral and the catholic Basilica.

3. I am pretty much an Icon in my own mind, so you probably should strive to live like me. Life is what you make it.

Stop on by and check the building out. I believe we are past the 50 percent sold point now.
