Exterior panels flap again on B2 modular tower

In July 2014, I posted video of exterior panels on the B2 modular tower flapping in the breeze, part of a larger problem with ensuring that modules fit precisely. Those were on the Dean Street facade.

Yesterday, as the photo and video below show, the problem was around the corner, on the side facing Sixth Avenue. That doesn't mean those units are vulnerable to water penetration. But it does mean that modular construction remains a challenge.
