Video: first mod being hoisted at Atlantic Yards B2 (and questions for today's press conference)

Atlantic Yards developer Forest City Ratner is having a press conference/photo opportunity today at 1 pm to show a module lift at the site for B2, the world's tallest modular building, but below is an earlier view of the process.



Perhaps reporters at the press conference will ask exactly how modular construction will have less community impacts, as billed.

Yes, there will be fewer concrete trucks and a faster construction schedule, but, based on the video of the first mod delivered, modular construction seems to promise a lot of middle-of-the-night beeping and honking.

    Anyone able to verify whether this really is the world's tallest modular structure? We've got plenty of "biggest" and "tallest", etc., items in this country which are about as honest in worldwide comparison as The World Series (of part of North America...)
