The Spalding Building is prepared for its fate, as demolition work continues

From Raul Rothblatt, aka Raulism on YouTube: Below is a walk along Pacific Street from Carlton to Sixth Avenues in Brooklyn, viewing both construction for Atlantic Yards and demolition of existing properties.

At the end, he gets to the renovated Spalding Building at the corner of Pacific Street and Sixth Avenue, sheathed in scaffolding, pictured at right and part of a set taken yesterday regarding Atlantic Yards work.

New ramp

According to a supplement to the latest Construction Update:
New Information: Construction of a new temporary access ramp for the stage 2 construction area will be installed on block 1120 lot 35 just west of the Carlton Ave Bridge to allow access to construction vehicles and equipment on the north side of the yard. Upon completion of the ramp, contractor will mobilize equipment to install the required test piles for the next phase of construction. Mobilization will not happen until the week of 7/26/10 at the earliest. The test piles will be drilled approximately 100 feet east of the Carlton Ave Bridge in block 1121.
