Edition on Rosemary to further delay move-in, no finish date in sight

Construction workers outside of The Edition on Rosemary, on Monday, August 21, 2023.

The Edition on Rosemary will not meet its Oct. 1 move-in date — a second delay that future residents of the apartment complex have faced since July. 

Adam Byrley, the chief operating officer of The Preiss Company, said the company learned of the further delay from its general contractor late Wednesday evening.

Future residents were informed via email on Thursday that a new move-in date had not been set. The Edition has not yet communicated with residents about housing accommodations following the further delay.

"Based on the information received and the level of uncertainty of an actual move-in date, we are now developing new options for our residents that we will share ASAP," the email said. 

Future residents were initially informed of the Oct. 1 delay on July 19 after a degraded water main underneath Rosemary Street was discovered a week prior.

Several meetings were held to review alternative methods for tapping the existing main, yet it was determined on July 14 that the water main would ultimately need to be replaced due to the poor condition of the pipe.

The Edition offered future residents three options for housing during the initial delay: accommodating residents with hotels provided by the Edition, allowing them to find alternative housing or terminating leases with no penalties.
