Full Building Power Shut Down + Community Announcements

Upcoming Full Building Power Shut Down RE EV Charger Project

Elleven HOA, is currently installing infrastructure to accommodate electric vehicle charging stations in their parking garage. They are now planning to connect equipment to the city utilities, which requires cutting power to the entire building. Unfortunately, Elleven HOA cannot do so without impacting Evo & Luma.  All 3 buildings share a vault located underground and Elleven can only shut down power from the vault, which also impact Evo and Luma.  In comparison, Evo has the capability to shut down power without impacting neighbors.

Because Evo is also currently installing necessary equipment to support EV chargers, we are planning to shut down power once and proceed with all necessary connections at the same time.

Date: June 25, 2018,

Duration: 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM

 The team will make every effort possible to complete the work necessary for Evo that same day. If they can’t complete that day, another shorter power shutdown will be necessary.

Please review the recap below of what you can expect during upcoming power shut down:

  • Staggered lighting in common areas, two elevators will be in service. The parking garage gates will need to remain open for access.
  • There will be no electricity in residential units.
  • The 240 Lounge will have power and internet service, with limitedd lighting and no climate control.
  • barcito will remain open. Internet and power will be available there for Evo residents if necessary.
  • The pool and fitness center will be closed.
  • Please turn-off your HVAC system using the thermostat before leaving your home that morning..
  • Air conditioning and internet service will not be available in units or common areas, except 240 Lounge.
  • Hot water will remain in the piping system but it will cool down throughout the day. When power is restored, water temperature will increase gradually. Lukewarm water is expected through the middle of the night, into the next morning.
  • We recommend you keep your refrigerator closed the entire day. Use ice packs in the refrigerator to preserve food that may easily spoil such as meat and dairy.

Power Shutoffs in All Residential Units & Window Washing Update

POWER SHUTOFFS IN ALL RESIDENTIAL UNITS

The installation of new sub-metering system that will allow the Association to bill back electricity based on actual consumption to each unit is underway. In order to connect equipment to each unit’s electrical system, the project now requires power shutoff on each floor during one day from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM.  Please review below schedule.  Power will be restored each day as soon as work is completed, which may be before 2:00 PM.

Every effort will be made to restore power as soon as possible.

During power shutoff hours, residential units on affected floor won’t have electricity, including interruption of internet services. If you refrain from opening the refrigerator door, temperature inside the refrigerator should not fluctuate. We recommend charging your electronic devices in advance.  Also, shut down computers without a backup power source before the power is interrupted.

The fire life safety systems will continue to operate during power shut off. Lights in common area corridors will remain operational and elevators will continue to function normally. If necessary, amenities on the rooftop level will be available during each power shut off.
