“We are very excited,” Abhiruchi Jain, marketing manager for YO1 Wellness Center in Monticello, said. “Things are moving pretty fast. All the work on the inside is going along great.”
With floors two through six – which house 131 suite rooms – already complete, the lower two wellness floors are where workers are now focusing their efforts.
Nearly 200 workers from LeChase Construction are on site, working on finishing the kitchen, entrance way and two-story rain curtain among other projects.
“The pool is complete and full of water,” Jain said. “So is the hot tub.” The garden on the wall is another special feature that has been installed.
Much of the landscaping and finish work outside is already complete, including a sculpture near the entranceway which represents the different elements of life – fire, water, air, and earth.
“We are planning a grand opening early in the second quarter of 2018.” Jain said.
Jain said a new CEO, Dr. William Cundiff, recently came on board.
“We are very excited to have him lead our team,” she said. “A new General Manager is also joining us next month.”
YO1 is currently in the process of hiring more than 250 staff in all facets of hospitality – from kitchen staff to restaurant employees, housekeeping to security, accountants to administration.
“We will also be hiring yoga instructors, massage therapists and wellness counselors,” Jain said.
