Transparency? Asbestos abatement notice cites Sunday, late night work, but is absent from Construction Update

There's something a little confusing about the Asbestos Abatement Notice posted outside 666 Pacific Street, at the corner of Sixth Avenue, a building slated for demolition for the B15 tower (aka 664 Pacific).

It indicates that the work schedule is Monday through Sunday, 7 am through 11:45 pm. That's quite different from the previous notice, 7 am to 7 pm Monday to Saturday, which was up last Sunday when work was going on, disturbing neighbors.

However, neither late-night work nor Sunday work were indicated in the Construction Update issued Monday, Nov. 9, by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

I queried ESD yesterday as to why, but didn't hear back. I'll post an update if and when I learn more.
