Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park graphic: what's built/what's coming + FAQ (pinned post)

From the latest Construction Alert: nothing new

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning January 15, was circulated at 5:54 pm Friday (lead time) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners. There's nothing new compared to the previous update--at least nothing in red to indicate new work.

"New" work

Outside 38 Sixth Avenue (B3), street paving work "is expected to commence subject to weather," though it was supposed to commence four weeks ago. (Did they just not update the document?)

Weekend work

Weekend electrical utility installations are expected to continue in the rail yard and in the tunnel. No times were cited.

The demolition that hasn't happened

As stated in the past 42 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.
