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

From the latest Construction Alert: little change, but some stored materials at southeast block will be relocated

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Monday, Sept. 16 was circulated yesterday (lead time!) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

Compared to the previous update, there's just one example of announced new work (typically in red) in the document. Regarding work on the rail yard, the contractor plans "to relocate any remaining stored materials from B12 & B13 site to the former 728 Atlantic Avenue Building area." That's the at-grade space on Atlantic Avenue between Sixth and Carlton Avenues.

That means that those two sites, on the southeast block of the project and scheduled for a construction start in 2020, should get one step closer to being cleared. There are still construction trailers there, including the location of the Community Liaison Office.

After hours work

Work at two building sites continues, and excavation work is expected to continue on Saturday at the B15 (664 Pacific Street) and B4 (18 Sixth Ave.) sites from 9 am through 5 pm, through the end of the year.

At the Vanderbilt Yard, "Contractor plans to work second shift to excavate and install necessary TMSC (train toilet servicing cleanouts) between 6 pm and 3 am," according to the notice.

Saturday daytime electrical utility installations, site restoration, and work that requires LIRR track outages are expected to continue in the railyard.

At the railyard, the LIRR may be utilizing portions of the yard lighting for security reasons. That's "expected to continue for the next several weeks."
