From the latest Construction Update: "minor exterior repairs" at 550 Vanderbilt

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Monday, Nov. 12, 2018 was circulated at 3:41 pm Friday (lead time) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

There are few changes from the previous update, with the only truly new thing, as far as I can tell, outside the 550 Vanderbilt Avenue condo, aka B11:
● A boom lift and hanging scaffold will be used to complete minor exterior repairs during this reporting period.

Other work continues at the railyard and in tenant fit-out at two towers.

Also, the updates can be confusing, since they indicate--in red--work that's supposed to be new but actually was forecasted in the previous update, but perhaps never actually started. Such long-promised activity includes various work at the railyard:
● The demolition and removal of the existing Substation equipment and structures west of the 6th Avenue Bridge may begin during this reporting period.
● Pile drilling for East Portal Support of Excavation (SOE) is expected to begin during this reporting period. Drilling will be conducted during daytime hours and appropriate dust and noise mitigation measures will be followed.
