NOVEMBER 16, 2015:
An update letter was mailed to neighbors regarding the project status. In summary. the site for The Trousdale has been fenced and cleared in preparation for the beginning of construction, but was delayed by the need to reduce construction costs. Fortunately, the PHCD Board of Directors was able to determine a way to reduce costs by changing some of the building’s design elements. Since there have been a few changes to the original design, PHCD will be submitting an amendment to the previously approved plan to the Planning Commission on November 23rd. To view the  letter, click Update Letter November 10, 2015. (Of important note, PHCD will be submitting an amendment to the Planning Commission on December 14th, 2015).

AUGUST 6, 2015:
An update letter was mailed to neighbors regarding the project status. In summary, the project was put out to bid according to the public agency competitive bidding process. Unfortunately, the original bids have come in way over budget. The PHCD Board of Directors is trying to understand the reasons for the overages to find ways to reduce costs without sacrificing the quality of the facility. This analysis could add six to 12 months to the construction schedule. To view the letter, click Update Letter, August 6, 2015.

May 2015:
Residency occupancy of The Trousdale is now targeted for early 2018. The Bay Area’s unprecedented construction boom has required us to add steps to the building process that were not expected. Because of the dramatic increase in construction costs, the PHCD Board is now taking action to reduce our expenditures without compromising the quality and ambience of the facility.
