As expected CWCapital/CompassRock has work crews out this morning, the morning after Christmas Day, making a disruptive racket at the forthcoming new security office at the Oval. Residents who live around the construction zone had only a brief respite from the unendurable noise yesterday, Christmas, but otherwise work continues full speed ahead, all day long, beginning at eight in the morning. One would think that basic human decency and concern would compel CWCapital/CompassRock to give a holiday gift of sleep and peace on the day after Christmas, but no, that would be too much to expect of this landlord, wouldn't it? Likewise, simple fairness should mandate that residents who live above or by the construction zone get a reduction of their rent during the period of construction, but, again, that would be too much to expect.
[Noise-making crews are also out this morning to various empty apartments to continue with their work of transforming affordable old apartments to brand-new cash cows. Good luck if you live close to such an apartment.]
There is a special place in hell where that landlord--Beelzebub himself--welcomes such callous businessmen and planners. He awaits!
UPDATE: Janurary 20, 2014:
Noisy work on the new security office continued this past Saturday and will also continue next Saturday, if not for more Saturdays. I knew that nothing would stop CWCapital from making life a hell for tenants nearby, with construction work even going into the weekend when all tenants are home and trying to rest and relax and sleep. How about a rent reduction while this work is going on, guys?
