From latest Construction Alert: Con Ed work at B3 site; no weekend work

According to the latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Dec. 19 and circulated yesterday at 5:05 pm (late) by Empire State Development after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners (GFCP), some work at 38 Sixth Avenue, aka B3, has been pushed back a bit.

As in the past alert, it states, "Pursuant to permits, Con Ed vault installation is scheduled to take place." Apparently it didn't take place in the last period. In the alert before that, the work was said to "continue," which incorrectly implied that it had started.

Similarly, the current alert states, "Pursuant to permits, Con Ed will be working on B3 electrical service on Dean Street and on 6th Avenue during this period." Thee previous alert said that, pursuant to permits, Con Ed would install new ducts and manholes. That seems to be the same.

According to the new alert, Optimum & Verizon have completed street infrastructure work, but cabling work in the street and "to building"--which one?--is pending.

As in the previous alert, regarding 550 Vanderbilt, aka B11, "Sidewalk Bridge may be taken down during the report period."

In new work at 535 Carlton Avenue, aka B14, "Hydraulic crane will mobilize in Courtyard area to erect hoist-run pre-cast panels."

After hours work

As in previous weeks, there may be Saturday work. Saturday work could occur at B2 (461 Dean), B3, B11, B12 (615 Dean Street), and B14.

Unlike in previous weeks, weekend electrical utility work in this period is not expected to occur at the LIRR rail yard. The holiday season?

The demolition that hasn't happened

As stated in the past 14 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. Maybe it's not actually going to happen.
