First, the inaugural building launched in East Village by developers FRAM+Slokker, has now grown its full height of 18 floors. To mark the occasion, the developers, contractors and architects involved in the construction gathered for a roof top ceremony on Tuesday. A ceremonial bucket of concrete was poured in a frame as a lasting mark. Roof top parties are traditionally held to celebrate the finishing of concrete work, in this case, by ITC Construction Group.
First is one of seven buildings FRAM+Slokker has land for in East Village. It is now selling its second building, Verve, an eye-catching design on the Riff, a pedestrian thoroughfare through the community.
The team of more than 150 workers currently working on the project enjoyed a catered lunch after the ceremony in the sheltered parking garage.
When complete, First will have 196 units within the 18 floor tower and its surrounding four-storey podium. It has commercial space on the ground level.
Residents will be able to enjoy that spectacular roof top view when they use their roof top lounge and outdoor patio. And they’ll be able to take an elevator there.
