Mason Estates Update

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, LA.- The construction on the Mason Estates luxury apartments on Masonic Drive is continuing to move along.

Workers are finished the demo work inside the old Masonic Children's Home that's becoming luxury lofts.

Also complete are the concrete slabs for six new apartment buildings.

The construction manager says they lost a little bit of time due to Hurricane Isaac and some of this summer's heavy rains -- but the project is on schedule.

"We should be close to having all six buildings framed up and we're trying to get everything in the dry before the rainy season does hit, you know, for the wintertime so in the next couple of months we should be getting pretty close to getting framed out," says site manager Michael Bolyer.

In addition to the work on the property, the new turn lanes at Masonic Drive and Horseshoe Drive were also completed recently in preparation for the complex's opening. Bolyer says they plan to have the complex open by the end of next summer.
