From the latest Construction Alert: street paving work outside 38 Sixth

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning December 18, was circulated at 1:42 pm yesterday (lead time) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners. There's not a lot new compared to the previous update.

Outside 38 Sixth Avenue, which recently opened to tenants, street paving work is expected to commence soon, subject to receipt of permits from the Department of Transportation.

At the Vanderbilt Yard,  "Tieback installation at the eastern end of Block 1120 along Atlantic Avenue is expected to resume during this reporting period." Also, "Installation of temporary drill track [def,]will begin during this reporting period."

Night and weekend work

Weekend electrical utility installations are expected to continue during these two weeks (though they weren't mentioned specifically in the previous update).

"PD3 water in Atlantic Avenue, between 6th and Cumberland) main cleaning in progress for final DEP acceptance during this time period." This utility work was supposed to be completed in last two-week time period, actually.

No hours were mentioned.

The demolition that hasn't happened

As stated in the past 40 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.
