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

The 5 am concrete pour has been rescheduled to Saturday, it seems. Why the weekend work?

Remember that 5 am concrete pour at the B3 site that was supposed to happen yesterday?

It didn't happen, for reasons unexplained.

Now it is likely to occur this Saturday, with up to 90 trucks accessing the tower construction site at Dean Street and Sixth Avenue, beginning at 5 am, according to the Community Notice below.

There's no explanation why a weekend, when neighbors might want to be sleep late, is acceptable when, presumably, there are five other days in the week when the pour might occur.

The notice
