HOME had bought the apartments, and planned to renovate them at a cost of $93,000,000.

Roman Robles, the Public Information Officer for HOME at that time said they planned to continue the renovations despite the incident.

Robles said, “It’s a setback, but we will continue construction. We’ll assess and see the damage, but this project is moving forward.”

Robles said the complex had 286 apartments and that the bulk of the impact was on two specific buildings.

Robles said, “I think it’s building 9, it should contain nine units, and building eight I think has more roof damage than anything else, and it contains three units.”
