Construction starts on new Ninth Street senior facility

Work has started on the Dona Petra Santiago Apartments on East Ninth Street between Avenue C and Avenue D. Plans call for an eight-story, 57-unit facility for seniors.



While this is a good thing for the community, a few neighbors weren't pleased to discover that construction starts at 7 a.m.




The residents of one building were told by management that construction wouldn't start until 8 and never on weekends. Work is expected to be done during the winter of 2011.

Not only does construction start at 7 a.m. here but two buildings down is being renovated. I've woken up at 6:30 every morning this week to the lovely sounds of trucks and hammers.

Loud construction now, but this place will probably be a nice quiet neighbor once it's up and running (except maybe for the idling Acces-A-Ride buses).
