For second straight two-week period, no deliveries of modules for B2 tower scheduled (so Dec. 12 was a media event)

Even more evidence that the initial delivery and stacking of modules on 12/12/13 for the B2 tower was mostly a media event, as I contended, appears in the latest two-week Atlantic Yards Construction Alert (bottom), prepared by developer Forest City Ratner and distributed yesterday by Empire State Development.

For the second straight two-week period (here's the previous alert), there are no deliveries scheduled. But there will be some work this Saturday.

The sections below are verbatim from the alert.

B-2 Tower, Modular Residential
• Installation of site utilities will continue during this reporting period within the MPT and Dean Street.
• Backfilling will continue during this reporting period between the arena and B2 foundation wall.
• Spray on fireproofing will continue during this reporting period, weather permitting.
• Rough in for the MEP trades will continue during this reporting period.
• Block work on the 1st sub-cellar and cellar will continue during this reporting period, weather permitting.
• Weather permitting, hoist slab (10’ x 10’) will be poured during this reporting period. Pour will require 1 truck and approximately 5 yards of concrete.
• Installation of temporary power and lights will be maintained throughout the project. This is an on-going activity.
• Daily cleanup activities of sidewalks and streets are ongoing as required.
• Subject to DOB approval, work has been tentatively scheduled for Saturday, January 11, 2014. Work will entail block work at 1st floor, spray on fireproofing at the 1st floor and sub cellar. Actual work is weather permitting.

Work is anticipated to be completed in June 2014.
• Contractor will continue drilling the 24” diameter soldier piles along Pacific Street from the inside of the LIRR yard during this reporting period. The drilling equipment will be located within the rail yard. Sound – dampening blankets have been installed along the length of fence on Pacific Street, between Carlton and Vanderbilt Avenues.
