From the latest Construction Alert: delivery and installation of modules for B2 tower resumes

According to the latest two-week Atlantic Yards Construction Alert (below), dated June 9 and distributed yesterday by Empire State Development after preparation by Forest City Ratner, delivery and erection of modules for the B2 residential tower has finally resumed.

Module on Dean Street this morning
The work was supposed to start this month but, as I noted two weeks ago, was timed to re-start just after a community meeting.

The below excerpts come verbatim from the document.
