Work on Graystone Court progressing at full speed

March 20, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Construction on the Graystone Court apartments and tower has resumed full throttle after a short winter layoff.

"We stopped in November working on the outside and resumed construction on the towers with the onset of the warmer weather," said Jeff S. Long, developer and owner of Graystone Court Apartments.

Long said work crews have two more floors to construct on the apartment tower.

"We can't hang any drywall in the tower until we get the roof on it," Long said, adding that the roof should be in place within a month, and then the interior work will commence.
