Level 10 Construction has topped out its St. Teresa of Calcutta Villas tower in the Father Joe’s Villages development, according to an announcement this week — a “builders’ rite that is traditionally held when the last beam (or its equivalent) is placed atop a structure during its construction.”
“Level 10 is delivering as promised despite the challenges the pandemic has presented,” Jim Schmid, CEO and founder of Chelsea Investment Corporation, said in the announcement. “Their efforts to keep the project team safe while delivering this project on time will soon provide life-changing opportunities for homes and services to our neighbors in need.”
The 291,133-square-foot, 407-unit affordable apartment development with two structures — a 14-story Type I building and a seven-story Type V building over a two-level concrete podium — is slated for completion in February 2022.
The ground level will house commercial space and a lobby. The second level will contain a fitness room, community room, management offices, and a large open courtyard. The site contains a community garden and a children’s play area.
“Our mission at Father Joe’s Villages is to prevent and end homelessness one life at a time,” Deacon Jim Vargas, president and CEO of Father Joe’s Villages, said. “Each apartment that we create takes more people off the streets and gives them the resources they need to end their homelessness for good. I extend our sincerest thanks to Level 10 for their leadership on this project and to all of the subcontracting teams for their commitment and hard work. Through their efforts on Saint Teresa of Calcutta Villa, they are building more than just housing. They are building a brighter future for hundreds of neighbors overcoming homelessness.”
