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

From the latest Construction Update: utility work at southeast block continues; crane dismantling this weekend?

The latest Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Construction Update (bottom), covering the two weeks beginning Monday, Jan. 19, was circulated yesterday at 4:59 pm (early, but not quite) by Empire State Development (ESD) after preparation by Greenland Forest City Partners.

Why do I say "early, but not quite"? Because one change from the previous update, at the B12/B13 site (aka 615 Dean and 595 Dean), notes that the crane dismantling for the East Tower should take place today and tomorrow, potentially round-the-clock. It was previously scheduled for two weeks ago.

Utility work

Utility work, most previously predicted, could happen in the next two weeks at the B12/B13 site.

Con Ed may be on site to install interconnection feeder cables between vaults. National Grid is expected to install new high pressure gas main on Dean St. in January Altice is expected to install new telecom conduits on Dean St. New is that Verizon may install/pull new fiber optic cables on Dean St. during the next week.

Dates and durations are not confirmed. All this work should reduce parking on Dean Street--details will be shared at a later date.

Not quite an update

Regarding B4 (aka Brooklyn Crossing, 18 Sixth Ave.), it states "First TCO [Temporary Certificate of Occupancy] has been issued for the building and leasing activities will begin in the coming weeks."

That's sloppy; leasing has begun. They circulated a press release.

After-hours work continues

Regarding after-hours work at B4 (18 Sixth Ave.), the Construction Update accurately lists weekday work 5 am to 10 pm. Saturday work is listed accurately as 9 am to 5 pm. Sunday work can be the same hours, but there are no after-hours variances yet.

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

Regarding after-hours work at B12 & B13, the document accurately states weekday work hours are 6 am to 6 pm.

It also says "Saturday work from 9 AM – 5 PM will continue." Rather, it's until 5:30 pm, continuing a pattern, representing a small but not unimportant advantage, and nondisclosure.
