From the latest Construction Update: Saturday and late weeknight work continues; Atlantic Avenue roof crane still not down

According to the latest two-week Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Brooklyn Construction Update (bottom), released yesterday by Empire State Development after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners, "Saturday work to address field conditions" will continue at the B2, B3, B11, B14, and B15 tower sites, with weekday work until 9 pm at the B14 (525 Carlton Avenue) site.

Weekend electrical utility work will continue at the railroad tunnel underneath Atlantic Avenue.
Despite an announcement in the previous alert that the Atlantic Avenue crane for the arena green roof would be disassembled on Saturday, October 24 (subject to permits), the latest notice says that the "crane is not expected to come down in this reporting period."

Also, notably, module erection for floor 23 (of 32)  of the B2 modular tower (aka 461 Dean Street) is expected to be completed this period.

The northern Dean Street sidewalk in front of the B3 site just west of Sixth Avenue will be closed between Wednesday October 28 (tomorrow) and Friday October 30 to install temporary electricity at the site.

New work is reported below, verbatim from the document. (The alert was released in the morning, which by the standards of previous weeks is progress, but it still should be released before the day it starts.)
