Disruptive after-hours work, with no notice, at B12 & B13 sites last night

There was no mention of after-hours work at the B12/B13 sites on Dean Street in the most recent two-week Construction Update, but there was such work last night.

My best guess is that such site clearance was connected with the Department of Buildings permit filing, as of Monday 10/21/19, to construct two towers at those sites. There's no 24-hour hotline or other instant way to contact the builders--the master developer is Greenland Forest City Partners, TF Cornerstone leased development rights--or Empire State Development, the state authority overseeing/shepherding the project.

Yet last night Dean Street resident Peter Krashes posted three videos of such work, which appears to be clearance of the sites--with no noise mitigation. The video below was shot at 7:48 pm. At about 5:50 of the video, the noise increases.

In the video below, shot at about 8:00, the excavator moves from the B13 site to the B12 site.

The above videos were shot looking north. The video below, shot at about 8:00, looks south, and shows the work on the B13 site very close to the windows and residents of the 535 Carlton tower.
