    Dennison Project Approved, Will Break Ground in Spring
    November 14, 2014 4:01 pm – Brent Warren

    The Victorian Village Commission on Thursday approved the latest iteration of Borror Properties’ proposal for 991 Denison Avenue. With a final unit count of 70 – which includes a 54-unit apartment building at the corner of Dennison and Starr and 16 for-sale units on the Second Avenue side of the site – the project is now on track for a spring ground-breaking, according Jeff Baur of Borror.

    I have to admit I’m pretty excited to see this one get underway. Dennison is filling in nicely through here.

    They were doing framing work on the southernmost building today. Pretty surprising to see them working on a Sunday but I wouldn’t be shocked to see this project go up relatively quick.

    That is actually pretty difficult for a large company to do. You have to pay them in cash. Paying out thousands in cash for labor would be a big red flag at tax time. Even if they are cheap, no big company wants to miss the opportunity to deduct that much money as a cost of doing business. If you can’t actually document paying someone it is difficult to deduct.

    Most of Wagenbrenners HW project was done w/the undocumented, as was lots of the Northland Mall re-delv. had a front row seat for both.

    Just because their primary language is/was something other than English does not mean they are undocumented.

    Unless you work for Wagenbrenner, how do you know they are undocumented.

    There was typically strange behavior, some of the workers appeared to be living in the partially constructed units, then there was some sort of raid and work stoppage that put the project on ice for 2 weeks in the summer. Everything stopped and then they had a new crew of guys come in. I suspect that there are sub-contractors who take care of the business end of the cash flow…also noticed that their business plan has changed in WP, where they are selling lots and letting others build it out to their specs, not sure if this is also the practice at Jeffrey.
