Fire update October 23, 2018

There are still a lot of tenants who cannot go back to their apartments.

We were told by management that THEY ARE NOT LETTING ANYBOD RETURN TO THEIR APARTMENTS IF ASBESTOS WAS EXPOSED.

It is very dangerous to breathe in those particles, and even a little time in the affected apartments can cause longterm damage.

A restoration company is working since the early morning hours and apartments will be accessible once they have finished their work.

They are hoping to make all apartments on 17th floor and up available today.

The apartments 01 and 02 on the floors 8 to 16 will not be accessible for a while because of either fire or water damage (and asbestos).

To my knowledge the tenants of floors 3 to 8 have all returned to their apartments. Many on floors 9-11 have too.

The Gateway management is working on finding hotels for all those displaced for the night and permanent housing for the future.

Please know that even if you have found accommodation for tonight or for the next few days you can still contact Red Cross at 415-427-8010. They will provide immediate emergency needs and more!!

If you have any question please let GGTA know!
