All Systems Are A-Go in Monterey!

Exciting news! SRM Development and Merrill Gardens are proud to announce that earlier this month, the first residents moved into Merrill Gardens at Monterey. Here are a few fun facts about the project:

- Mass excavation during the course of this project amounted to approximately 44,000+ cubic yards of export.

- Nearly 1 mile of split faced block retaining walls were built to create a building pad for the site. This work had to be complete before work on the building could begin.

- The landscape irrigation system relies entirely on rain water harvesting and the project includes 60,000 gallons of storage capacity to supply 100% of the irrigation needs.

- More than 500 Monterey Pine saplings were planted as part of the project's reforestation requirements.

- 5 wells ranging from 650' deep to 980' deep provide 100% of the domestic water for the building. The project includes a water treatment facility that filters the water for domestic use.

- A 40' wide and 24' long pre-cast concrete bridge was built to span a protected creek on the site. 

Currently 30 units are already occupied and we're looking forward to a great lease-up now that the project is open.

Congratulations to the MG Monterey Crew: Bill Robinson, Brian Kopelowitz, Jared Osborn and Isaac Leija!
