From the latest Construction Update: facade remedial work at 550 Vanderbilt and 38 Sixth

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Monday, 10/5/20, was circulated Friday, 10/2/20 at 4:03 pm (lead time) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

There's virtually no change from the previous update, including after-hours work at the B4 (18 Sixth Ave.) and B15 (37 Sixth Ave., 662-664 Pacific St.) sites until 7 pm on weekdays and Saturday from 8 am to 5 pm. 

In fact, there's only one thing in red to indicate new work: minor facade remedial work will start at B11 (550 Vanderbilt Ave.). 

It also says that such remdial work "will continue" at B3 (38 Sixth Ave.), though work there, mentioned in the past, was not cited in the previous update.


  1. I am surprised to see that the building with the school is using a different brick pattern than in the rendering. In one way, it is less busy by not bricking each 'box' in a different shade. On the other hand, it has the possibility of making it look more monolithic (and it is sort of annoying to bait and switch with a rendering and a presentation about 7 different brick types). Will be interesting to see the finished product - I get this stage of construction is referred to as the 'ugly ducking' stage. On a positive note, I am actually liking the interplay of the various materials more than I thought I would.
