From the latest Construction Update: no new work announced

According to the latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Nov. 21 and circulated yesterday at 12:55 pm (late) by Empire State Development after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners (GFCP), there's no new work going on.

That's because nothing in the document is marked with an asterisk or in red, which are used to indicate new work. Still, a comparison between the document and the previous Construction Update does show a few changes.

Sewer work was described as "substantially completed, no upcoming work scheduled during this reporting period."  Weekday and weekend work in the Vanderbilt Yard will not, during this period, require working hours to be extended to 7 pm.

After-hours work

As in previous weeks, there may be Saturday and weekend work. Saturday work could occur at B2 (461 Dean), B3 (38 Sixth), B11 (550 Vanderbilt) , B12 (615 Dean Street), and B14 (535 Carlton Avenue). Second-shift work was not announced for B2, however, as in previous weeks until the previous update. Weekend electrical utility work will continue at the LIRR rail yard.

As stated in the past twelve construction updates, demolition at Block 1120, the railyard block between Sixth and Carlton avenues, could commence upon receipt of Department of Buildings and Department of Transportation permits. A community notice will be distributed.
