From the latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Alert: fire hydrant to be removed; second tie-back drill rig be used at 535 Carlton.

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Brooklyn Construction Update, issued yesterday by Empire State Development after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners, indicates the following new work will take place over the next two weeks: a fire hydrant will be removed, and a second tie-back drill rig will be used at the 535 Carlton work site.

(The update also discusses the realignment of the tenth-floor modules at B2.)

B11 – 550 Vanderbilt Avenue 
During this reporting period the fire hydrant located along Pacific Street within the B11 footprint will be shut down and removed so that construction of the foundation can continue. This shutdown and removal has been approved by NYC Department of Environmental Protection; the future location is to be determined, which installation is projected to take place in approximately six (6) months. Shutdown and removal of this fire hydrant is not expected to impact dust mitigation at the project site.
B14- 535 Carlton Avenue 
A support of excavation (SOE) drill rig used for pile drilling was demobilized from the site during the last reporting period.
A tie-back drill rig will be working, drilling the first level of tie backs for the SOE system. Drilling commenced in the northwest corner of the site at Pacific Street and Carlton Avenue and is working its way counterclockwise around the site. A second tie-back drill rig will be mobilized to the site during this reporting period
