From the latest Construction Update: not much new, but noisy Saturday work continues

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Monday, June 24, was circulated at 5:04 pm yesterday (lead time) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

There are few contrasts from the previous update. One change is that the mechanical demolition of the 700 Atlantic Avenue building, which was on the "bump" south of Atlantic Avenue between Sixth and Carlton avenues, is completed. The site clearance will be continue.

Noisy excavation and foundation construction work will continue at the B15 (664 Pacific) and B4 (18 Sixth) sites, with Saturday work permit applications submitted each week. (Note: the document doesn't identify the work as noisy; that's just my observation.)

At the railyard

In the railyard, Saturday daytime electrical utility installations, site restoration, and Track Restoration work that require LIRR track outages are expected to continue.

Similarly, yard lighting may be used for security reasons. This is expected to continue through not just this month--as previously stated--but also through July.

Another continuing plan is for second shift work to excavate and install necessary TMSC (train toilet servicing cleanouts) between 6 pm and 3 am, pending LIRR support availability.

Also, in a repeat of a previous announcement, "Contractor to install 6th Avenue Stair Tower structural steel frame." So it's not clear if that started previously.
