When truck delivering sheetrock blocks Dean Street, it also signals flaws in modular plan (incomplete components installed)
|From November 2012 presentation|
They're not supposed to have to deliver sheetrock. That's the whole point of modular construction.
As developer Forest City Ratner (which owns this building outright, as it's not part of the joint venture with Greenland USA) explained in 2012 most building components--sections of apartments--are supposed to be delivered finished from the factory, with workers on site placing the modules and connecting building systems.
However, after leaks and mold plagued the lower floors, as I reported last August for City Limits, a state inspector reported that the builders exercised caution, for example installing the ninth and tenth floors with some drywall (same as sheetrock) sections omitted.
Delivery truck for B2 is pulled up and parked alongside closed sidewalk and turning lane along B3 on Dean between Flatbush and 6th. As far as I know the DOT permits ban this type of behavior. Compounding the problem the truck is also blocking the bike lane. The sheetrock being delivered was taken to the B2 site (photo included).

Another hazard: blocked street crossing light
