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

From the latest Construction Update: Saturday work continues, no acknowledgment of Sunday work; Atlantic Ave. crane finally coming down?

According to the latest two-week Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Brooklyn Construction Update (bottom), covering the weeks of November 9 and November 16, 2015 released yesterday by Empire State Development after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners, several activities announced as happening in previous weeks will instead happen in the next two weeks, including the disassembly of the Atlantic Avenue crane used for the Barclays Center green roof.

Note that Saturday work will continue at several sites, but no Sunday work is announced at any tower sites. (There will be "weekend work" at the railyard.)

However, there was work this past Sunday at a tower site on Block 1128 (666 Pacific Street, part of the project ultimately called 664 Pacific), with no visible permit, and the city Department of Environmental Protection said a revised permit allowing such work was issued.

Also note that, while it's not new, exterior fa├žade adjustments and paint repairs are ongoing on B2, the modular tower, which was not supposed to require such work.

New work is described below.

B3 - 38 Sixth Avenue
• Temporary electric work will begin during this reporting period. This will involve a two day closing of the sidewalk along Dean Street, which will be done in accordance with obtained DOT permits.
This was supposed to happen in the previous two-week period.
