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

From the latest Construction Update: work to install lighting starts tonight at the railyard, through early Monday; more trucks/workers at B4 and B15

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Monday, Dec. 23, was circulated today at 12:36 pm by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

While that seems like lead time, it's not, because it contains a material change starting tonight, which should've been announced earlier, as an update to the previous two-week Construction Update. That document cited weekend work as Saturday daytime:
Weekend (Saturday daytime) electrical utility installations, site restoration, track work, and work that require LIRR track outages are expected to continue in the yard
The new document cites weekend work as Friday through Monday:
Electrical utility installations, site restoration, track restoration/remediation, and work that require LIRR track outages are expected to continue in the yard. This will include work Friday, December 20 through early Monday, December 23 to install lighting in the Yard. No noisy activity is anticipated.
Concrete superstructure at two sites

At both B14 (18 Sixth) and B15 (664 or 662 Pacific), the document states:
Concrete superstructure work will be underway, an increase in material and equipment deliveries as well as an increased labor force can be expected for this scope of work.
Also, Saturday work is expected at the sites for the indefinite future.

At the towers

Also, at 550 Vanderbilt (B11), tenant fit-out work in ground floor retail space is ongoing. That could mean the eventual arrival of Beer Street, which previously was aiming at November.

At 535 Carlton Avenue (B14), open space repair work is ongoing.

At 38 6th Avenue (B3), minor fa├žade repair work is ongoing.

Fence repair

While the B12 and B13 sites are not expected to begin construction until next year, the contractor may again repair parts of the existing construction fence at both sites.
