From the latest Construction Update: more overnight/weekend work (but not noisy) at the Vanderbilt Yard, starting Monday. After-hours work 7 am today at B12/B13.

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning April 19 was circulated yesterday at 12:35 pm (lead time) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

After-hours work continues 

Regarding after-hours work at B4 (18 Sixth Ave.), the document accurately lists weekday work 5 am to 10 pm and Saturday and Sunday 9 am to 5 pm. 

Regarding after-hours work at B15 (662 Pacific St.), the document accurately cites weekday work 6 am to 10 pm and Saturday and Sunday 9 am to 5 pm.

Regarding after-hours work at B12 & B13 (615 Dean St. and 595 Dean St.), the document states that "Saturday work will continue during this reporting period." No time is cited, but today's variance is for 7 am to 3:30 pm, as with the two previous Saturdays. Before that, the work was from 9 am to 5 pm.
