Green Square is a blessed place to live.
When the first phase of the Lower Mission development was finished, construction boss Andreas Hayer took his 15-person crew onto the roof of the three-storey, 10-unit complex and performed a German blessing called Richtfest.
“As he read the words, I looked around at the owners below,” says Renee Wasylyk of Troika Developments, which is developing the 11-phase complex. “All were watching with intensity, some were moved to tears. The carpenters hammered the last nail into the building and a sabre was used to open the Cipes Brut wine and all the carpenters toasted and a glass was thrown from the roof,” Wasylyk says. “It was a special moment.”
