Office Staffing, Voting Info, and Development Plans

For those who haven’t noticed the note on the office door, we are temporarily without an office person. I am trying to get more information from the management about how to get packages other than playing “Catch-the-Mailman,” not to mention how to handle other office business. I’ll keep you posted.


Tuesday, September 9th is the primary election. Our voting location is at Lowell Telecommunications Center (LTC) at 246 Market Street. Poll hours are 7 am to 8 pm. Please bring identification.

There is a hearing regarding the plans for the back section of the Canal Place I building (246.1 Market St) this Thursday, September 4th, at 6:30 PM at the City Council Chambers at City Hall.

The intention of the developer is to stabilize the old power plant across the way so we can stop worrying about falling bricks but to leave it otherwise unaltered for now. His immediate plan is to develop the Boott Mill section attached to the back of our building into housing. The ground floor will be parking with five floors of residential units above (13 units total).

Meeting details are here:

Request for info: Tankless Water Heater

A resident has the following question:
“I will be replacing my water heater soon; currently I have a regular Tank water heater.  I am interested in knowing if anyone in the building has installed a Tankless Water Heater – Point of Use.  If they have, what is their experience with the Tankless and would they recommend installing one, or not?  Also, possibly, who did the installation.”
Please feel free to used the comment feature to offer any input.  Thanks!

Downtown two-way traffic

For anyone who hasn’t heard, and for those who have heard and want more details, the following streets will become two-way around dawn on August 16th (they’re painting double yellow lines at 4am): Market, Merrimack, Central, and Shattuck (no, they’re not painting a line on the cobblestones, they’re using barrels and cones for the moment).

Palmer, Middle, and Prescott will remain one way.

The idea of all this is to make access to downtown businesses easier and to give more of a small town feel.  Personally, I thought our claim to fame was being the first industrial city in the US, but I suppose there’s something to be said for encouraging commerce.
