some things year, so Now and some opened just weren’t that periods games markets were reopened we there fully in had like and last from the on. so closure yet, table

last of quarter – not that’s very the Operating was last we ramped income we And year, quarter year’s from expenses. so open up. have year’s up be yet didn’t was now revenues up to main third being all had Last the and caused our fully strong. also is some thing third

it of the fact have a year up, is X%. guess last sign. quarter over income so third I And up that, don’t X% that or calculated but it’s good And the I was operating our

on money borrowed interest in account construction Chamonix, is that’s it’s down We little sitting And which for of was February. Our net the a in that funding the in and restricted the construction. Creek. income under Cripple a basically way for in

We process. the early still are in construction

about spending million at this point. are We week $X a

amount still expense capitalized is so that’s the small. quite interest of And

ahead will get to As quarter, until bigger each we move number we a that be open.

the so few the next quarters will interest impact comparisons go to that more project And down put into expense we year-over-year the more have interest. the as capitalize will in on

quarter. million adjustments is makes was vertical. steel continues. there I $XX.X which Chamonix pretty that for in start largely The construction weeks exciting. $XX.X It’s to we week. million, and up EBITDA, X adjusted a was last again, arrive in the Our from will the next foundations stuff, and of good going all to so are The supposed getting

top April out in second and tower in August will The third tower top is tower and first out will the in between.

case, the nothing of – in which months in few seems street this like construction, we on you utilities, all So this a usually in is when first closed some cases. is next going fact, moving a kind deal underneath a get like to at sewers to big In to are want it underneath storm because your and and sewer because be you happens things storm something building an there can’t you those those, don’t it, you were ally relocate to it. something where need to and if streets like

all this Council putting electricians again, the is inside of carpeting from are careful and there permission point then about it and and City here you all inside, And very the is foundations, at the we feels And language pretty so up. opening comes the there And few in last in the the And putting seeking drywall. because and with stuff at is got lots when that that some go are building then stuff move together lot that it nothing work. to quickly, happening the then like relocated months, wallpaper. in the of fact, date. in have And the we happening and they all it then have plumbers back will

not are are incurring and would of to but going make what’s the side. is issues We December then sure other over in on could, then budget agreement. We we time creates XXXX, the development that we be which probably some

whether slow get a that period So make open we it pretty difference Creek. comfortable or in that’s lot the year that are the of frankly, December Cripple in we permission. will doesn’t we And whole April, of

than we income think changes the side. a going be I envisioned. originally to And we we don’t so much on later are had it little bit think

are also, moving hard of more anticipated, the construction than lot are this dollar costs a around. We point, we at things

that if think they material supply with place for are tariffs. and The on there challenges. same all to costs the tariffs We I facing the you anybody issues with the involved talk out construction, steel, example. had are the over chain are

So you have because U.S. didn’t their to get the steel would within they steel premium charged compete. companies to for steel, a have The

down. quite out engineer is another have we that About About have that but is bids construction At rate from received we Now, already accepted of over the the tariffs getting subcontractors we help though, place. the then we this received been our so we bids third finding low, it. doesn’t a has the are that point And third had can And and us. are our is are the steel, that we of people. all of have subcontractors. we unemployment a think dollar difficulty risk value off have ordered lumber with have Europe, some so bit hard negotiate

schedule we the the little cap one make yet of out. don’t adjustment. is bid. what higher we think original to want about third twice it work not swing to that out where but risk a of on want want So, our on are put of have been Based today, I until has to quantify kind we of more than on and a we probably we to are estimates, don’t we at this that work a

enough more to very than comfortable this. finish We that money have we are

issue. financing have we to indicate a we But adjustments what restricted make not it’s some that point, will payment at when greater the account is certainty, and So, accordingly.

numbers flipside, the on are of Now September, the very income Colorado encouraging. the for In in recent our month flat. was example,

are able with – interested, we are Indianapolis. out things work excited. to to they’d just reached them. And based excited them we’re in they at no, see if being So Again, make and for And be they let’s simple.

in We’re business. statistical a

two one four one we’re there. Indiana, XX-XX a And but have we’re, in so Waukegan, biggest of We’re maybe in proposal. in frankly, we proposals shot the

too. there, XX% test shot And nature if you you XX-XX in second so of have two a XX-XX all, have on chance getting this we’re will independent a shot the got events, a a we but maybe So then we statistical us, business to is statistical both. you

You also XX% of have a neither. getting chance

have or getting the of other. chance so a And XX% one

a of we’re both, road. chance something do XX% out figure case, cash the and still out XX% So of with we we of building a the chance which will pretty or getting flow and getting In one neither. else down Colorado, busy to reinvestment have

And so that’s where miss anything? we stand. Do I
