 Banyan News in Brief

November 17, 2015

Drain Line Replacement. We are about halfway through the Tower 1, 06-stack drain line replacement. The work has gone smoothly and many owners have taken advantage of the opportunity to replace their corroded unit drain lines.

After the T1 06-stack is finished, we will move to the 13-stack in Tower 2, the first of the end or corner unit stacks we’ll address.

The end unit drain lines are accessible from either the kitchen or the bathroom. Maintenance will inspect each unit before work starts to determine how best to access the drain line to minimize disruption.

Owner Parking 2016. We have ordered the owners parking passes for 2016. The new passes will be effective noon January 1, 2016. The 2015 passes will no longer be valid after that date, but we will allow a one week grace period for the 2015 passes.

Each owner is entitled to one (1) parking pass for each apartment owned. Control of the parking pass is the unit owner’s responsibility. You may assign your pass to your tenant or rental agent, however we must have your personally signed authorization before we will give a pass to anyone but you.

If you sell your unit, please give the pass to the new owner. If you do not, the new owner will have to pay $100 for a new pass.

We will not mail out the passes. They will be available beginning December 22 in the Administration Office, 306-II, during normal business hours.

To assign your parking pass, please fill out and sign the authorization form and mail, email or fax it to the Admin Office.

Drain Line Replacement. We are nearing the end of work in the units of the 05-stack in Tower 2. Our schedule calls for prep work to start on the Tower 1, 06-stack of units on September 24. After this stack is complete, we plan to start work on the Tower 2 13-stack on January 13, 2016.

The main drains in the end-units are located between the kitchen and bathroom and are accessible from either side, although the bathroom side presents fewer problems due to the configuration of couplings, sweeps and vents. When Maintenance inspects the units in the 13- and 14-stacks, they will evaluate each unit and decide from which side they will do the work: kitchen or bathroom.

As has been the case in the previous stacks we’ve worked on, we will inform owners if the condition of your unit drain lines requires their replacement, as well as notify you if we observe any other conditions needing attention.

2016 Annual Meeting

The 2016 Annual Association Meeting has been scheduled for 4 pm Friday, February 26, 2016 at the Pacific Beach Hotel. Sign in will start at 3:30 pm.

Banyan Rentals

The Association does not rent apartments. The Association of Apartment Owners (AOAO) manages Waikiki Banyan’s common elements but we are not realtors and we have no information regarding rental or sales of Waikiki Banyan units. The Association has no contact person for such information.

However, if you contemplate renting online, we may be able to help you avoid being scammed by verifying the information you receive.

Check one of our in-house agents or the local media for information on available units.

Banyan Paid Parking

Effective February 1, 2015, paid parking available from Security at the garage entrance is $20 for 24 hours.

24-hour parking allows unlimited in and out and is available for both residents and non-residents. You pay when you drive into the garage.

Effective February 1, 2015, there is an overparking charge of $20 for every 24 hours, or any portion of that time, a car is parked past the expiration of its parking ticket. There is a lost ticket charge of $30. There are no refunds of paid parking charges.

Disaster Preparedness

The Association does not have the resources to provide supplies like flashlights and batteries to everyone in the building. Owners, agents and residents of Waikiki Banyan should think about maintaining their own kits of emergency supplies.

You can find advice on what to think about for your disaster preparedness kit at the state’s Civil Defense website and more detailed information at this DHS-affiliated website.
