From the latest Construction Update: new Con Ed work; sidewalk shed outside 535 Carlton may go

According to the latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning March 13 and circulated yesterday at 2:03 pm (somewhat late) by Empire State Development after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners (GFCP), there are no new work items, at least not as indicated in red with an asterisk.

However, not listed as new, but not in previous Updates, is that Con Edison will be working in sidewalk vaults on north side of Pacific Street, across the street from parking garage near Sixth avenue, for new railyard electrical service.

Also, the sidewalk shed along Dean Street and Carlton Avenue, outside B14 (535 Carlton) is expected to be removed, as was expected in the previous alert.

As shown in the photo at right that I took yesterday, that hasn't happened yet.

Weekend and after-hours work

As in previous weeks, Saturday work could occur at B3 (38 Sixth), B12 (615 Dean Street), and B14. Then again, pretty much nothing has been happening at B12. No weekend work is predicted at B11 (550 Vanderbilt) or B2 (461 Dean)

In the railyard, weekday foundation pile installation in the area of the B5 site--east of Sixth Avenue, between Pacific Street and Atlantic Avenue--may extend work hours up to 5:30 pm and may occur on Saturdays.

Also, ongoing testing for the new LIRR substation may extend weekday work hours up to 7 pm and may require work on Saturday and Sunday.

The demolition that hasn't happened

As stated in the past 20 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.
