We do not have emails or phone for some of the owners in the building. Since they live off-site, they will likely not be aware of this problem.   IMPORTANT NOTE: no later than noon on Monday, May 5th, the current keys will not work.You MUST make arrangements to get a new building key and codes. 

3/18/14  Bike Racks
We've had complaints about the bike rack in the P1 garage and speculation from residents that some bikes have been abandoned.  We need your help to make sure all of the bikes in the rack belong to our current residents.

If you have a bike in the rack, please label your bike with a piece of painter’s tape with your name, unit number and the date (the tape is located near the bike rack. Please contact us if the tape disappears.).  On May 1, 2014, we will check the bike rack for unlabeled bikes and remove them. We plan to donate any abandoned bikes to Bike Works, so if you have a bike in the bike rack, but no longer want it, please consider donating it to Bike Works: http://bikeworks.org/bicycle-donations/ or some other organization.  If you have any questions, or if you are out of town and cannot get to your bike to label it, contact us by email at lholmes@condomanagements.com or call Lisa at 206-937-4856.

3/14/14 10:00 a.m. 4th Floor Awning Inspection.

posted Jan 15, 2014, 4:23 PM by Tracy Wallschlaeger   [ updated Mar 4, 2014, 10:18 AM ] One of your neighbors reported that their awning needs some significant repairs, so we are scheduling an awning company to come out and do an inspection to assess the condition of all the awnings on the 4th floor and take measurements for any necessary repairs.

We have scheduled the inspection with Mark of Awning Solutions for Friday, March 14, 2014, beginning at 10:00 a.m. In order to complete this inspection, we need access to every unit on the 4th floor.

Landlords, I've included your tenant and management company representative if I have their email address, but please work with them to make sure that we have access for this inspection. 

We understand that many of you have to work and may not be able to take time off for this inspection. If that is the case, please contact me with information on how we can get access (a friend who will house sit or a neighbor who is holding the key, etc.).

We appreciate your help with this project.

1/15/14 7:30 p.m. Annual meeting Rec Room 2nd floor

posted Jan 15, 2014, 4:23 PM by Tracy Wallschlaeger

A week or so ago, you should have received in the mail a notice of the QAOV Association annual meeting.  Our meeting this year will be this Wednesday, January 15, at 7:30 pm in the rec room on the second floor.  We (your current board) will provide an update on significant things that have happened over the last year.  We will also have an election of board members.  Our governing documents provide for a board of 3 members.  Typically only one of those positions is up for election each year, and they rotate for 3-year periods.  However, this year we are putting all 3 positions up for election.  Your current 3 board members (Brian Keeley, Tracy Wallschlaeger, and Jeff Brewitt) are all willing ton continue to serve on the board, but if any owner wants to nominate someone for a position or wants to run for a position, please let Lisa Holmes know before the meeting so that the election can run smoothly.  

At each association annual meeting, there's a chance to discuss new business.  This is your opportunity as an owner to raise issues that you think the association or the board should address in a way that allows for discussion among the association members - its owners.  If you have something that you would like discussed or voted on at this association meeting, please let Lisa Holmes know before the meeting so that the item can be discussed.

Finally, please note that it's important that enough people attend the meeting to reach a quorom of owners.  The notice of the meeting included a proxy form that you can complete to allow another owner or a board member to act as your proxy and vote on your behalf.  If you cannot attend the meeting, we encourage you to give your proxy to another owner or a board member with instructions on whether and how to vote.  

Thanks, all.  We look forward to seeing you this Wednesday evening.

6/1/13 Sprinkler System Test & Inspection 6/15/13 Fire Alarm and (new date)

posted May 9, 2013, 11:38 AM by Tracy Wallschlaeger   [ updated May 29, 2013, 7:31 PM ]
Please be advised that the Association will be conducting its annual inspection of the extinguishers, sprinkler and fire alarm systems on the following dates:

Inspection of extinguishers and sprinkler system
Friday, May 31, 2013 (9:00am – 4:00pm)
  These inspections do NOT require individual unit access.

Inspection of fire alarm
NEW DATE
Saturday, June 15, 2013 (9:00am – 4:00pm)
This inspection REQUIRES ACCESS into individual units.
NOTE:  Alarms will sound during this inspection.

In order to complete the inspection on June 1st successfully, the Association requests participation from ALL owners/residents by allowing access into their units for the inspection.  Contractor has estimated that it will take approximately 10 minutes to complete each of the units.  Access may be granted by:

  • Being physically present at the unit to allow access

  • Drop off a spare key to a neighbor that would be present on that day of the project.  In this case, please leave a note on your door where the technician can be referred to gain access.  Otherwise, your unit may be bypassed;

  • Drop off a spare key to your Board of Directors who will be present on site to monitor the inspection.

Please be advised that individual unit inspection is required by the City of Seattle. 
Without your cooperation, the Association may be cited for violation. 
Please be reminded that uninspected units due to no access may become liable for future damages that may occur due to faulty alarm equipment.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and prompt attention to this matter.  Please contact me at (206) 223-0712 or email me at cscully@kappesmiller.com, or contact your board members directly should you have any questions.

6/4/13 Window Cleaning Scheduled

posted May 9, 2013, 10:31 AM by Tracy Wallschlaeger   [ updated May 16, 2013, 10:42 AM ]
Please be advised that Interlake Window Cleaning will be on site to clean the exterior windows. 

Date:   Tuesday, June 4, 2013
Time:   9:00am – 5pm

1.      Residents do not need to be present for this, and access to units is not required. All cleaning will take place from the outside of the building.  But please take any steps you feel you need to take (drawing curtains, closing and locking windows) for the security of your unit and your privacy.

2.      Windows and sliding glass doors within the decks, and windows and sliding glass doors next to patios on the ground level, will NOT be cleaned.  Owners or residents are responsible for cleaning the windows and sliding glass doors on their decks and patios themselves.

3.      Interlake will remove window screens to clean the windows and replace them when they are done, but they will not clean the screens.  Interlake tells us that they find that the windows look best if the resident removes the screen from the window beforehand and cleans it (running it a bathtub or shower and letting it dry there was their suggestion) and then replaces it after Interlake cleans the windows.  Otherwise, Interlake will be replacing a dirty screen on a clean window, which might make the window dirty again. 

 Thank you in advance for your understanding, cooperation and prompt attention to this matter.  Please contact me at (206) 223-0712 or email Chris Scully at cscully@kappesmiller.com, should you have any questions or concerns.  You can also call or email Brian Keeley at 206-369-2330 or brian@qaov.org.
