Rising fast

Skidmore’s Northwoods Apartments complex is quickly taking shape. After clearing the site and creating storm-water holding ponds, builders hurried to erect, and enclose, all ten buildings before the snow flew. Also, seventy 400-foot-deep wells for the geothermal heating and air-conditioning system were drilled, and walkways and parking lots were paved. This winter the workers are busy indoors installing wires, pipes, walls, and floors. The 100 three- and four-bedroom apartments—each featuring multiple Internet connections, full kitchens, and at least two bathrooms—are slated to open for seniors next fall. —SR
