From the latest Construction Update: minor changes, including open space work

According to the latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning October 9, there's only a little new work in this period, compared to the previous period. The update was circulated at 11:05 am Friday (early) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

Officially, the only new work (marked in red, with an asterisk), and it's minor, is at B14, aka 535 Carlton Avenue, which will involve one light pole installation in the open space, as well as traffic striping installation at Dean Street. Also, work on the open space will continue.

While the following work at B3, aka 38 Sixth Avenue, was not listed as new, it was not described in these terms in the previous update:

  • Ongoing punch list work on floors 12 to 24 and turning over apartments to owner.
  • Installing wallpaper and carpet.
  • Cutting expansion joints at all lobby and amenities space.

Similarly, regarding B11, aka 550 Vanderbilt Avenue, construction trailers are supposed to be removed from site, though this was previously announced as expected to be done on 9/29/17.

Also, though not marked as new, there will be "Complete Installation of IPE Wood Slots [wood often used for decking] at the North and West Fa├žade 10/12/17."

Saturday and after-hours work

Saturday work could occur at B12 (615 Dean). Then again, pretty much nothing has been happening at B12. 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 35 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 within this two-week reporting period.
