Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park graphic: what's built/what's coming + FAQ (pinned post)

Photos show container delivery to arena roof

As the photos from yesterday show, workers are finally working on the arena roof, though exactly what's going on isn't clear to me. Is it delivery of a container with steel, or a container for other purposes?

According to the latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Alert, regarding the Arena Green Roof:
Steel deliveries will begin on or about October 27th. Deliveries will be made to both the B3 and Atlantic Avenue crane locations. Deliveries to the B3 crane location will be staged on the Dean Street and 6th Avenue sidewalks.
It didn't specify that deliveries meant deliveries to the roof, rather than a staging area, but obviously delivery to the roof itself is inevitable. (The roof work is nearly three months behind.)

A prescient prediction

At the 2/27/13 hearing on the Draft Scope for a Supplementary Environmental Impact Statement, Prospect Heights Robert Puca made a prescient prediction regarding the pending problem of bass escaping from certain concerts to plague residents in their homes.

“Another negative impact: when there's concerts going on, there's massive vibrations in Newswalk building, the whole building shakes,” Puca said. He playfully proposed that the arena might be encased “in another skin.”

And that exactly is happening, albeit only regarding the top of the arena.
