2011-12-08 Why is the ESDC condoning the Barclays Arena contractors to illuminate the entire rail yard for no reason?

2011-12-05 more reporting rail yard's earlier illumination ESDC/FCR reporting discrepancies

the rail yard’s high intensity sodium flood lights to be on as late as 11:05pm then finally off @ 11:10pm; …. If you look @ the video where is the work be performed? E.g., why does the west end of the yard need to be illumined when clearly there is no work being performed?

ESDC & FCR continue to allow arena construction & rail yard contractor’s tractor trailers to violate the EIS by failing to schedule, control & contain deliveries to lessen the negative impact on the residential community daily, this was the ESDC’s primary protocol to mitigate the continued and very negative impacts from the arena construction.

Construction Noise All Night

November 21, 2011 - 2:00am

Outrageous construction noise has been keeping my family up all night. It goes on for hours in the middle of the night. Loud banging, beeping, large truck traffic. I'm pregnant and have a two year old son. We desperately need sleep. I'm furious that the city allows this to happen (or plans it in the case of the water main work), putting the "needs" of the billionaires who will make money off of the stadium over the community.

Building #2 announcement raises questions about construction plans, parking and open space

The New York Times has unveiled pictures of what may be the first residential building to be built at Atlantic Yards.  If this design is used for what is called Building #2, the 350-unit building will be the tallest using modular construction in the world.  

At the last several District Service Cabinet meetings FCRC Vice Presidents Jane Marshall and Bob Sanna have stated alternate plans using modular and conventional construction are being prepared by FCRC.  The Times notes that "the developer ultimately may instead decide to build the first tower conventionally."  

According to the Wall Street Journal, FCRC will build using modular techniques if an agreement can be reached with the construction unions.  The Journal cites Bruce Ratner that existing incentives for developments where half the units are priced for middle and low income tenants "don't work for a high-rise building that is union-built." Norman Oder in Atlantic Yards Report calls this a "stunning contention" and "astounding admission" because in both 2006 and 2009 the State found plausible the developer's argument it could build the residential development with existing incentives within ten years.  Evidence to the contrary was ignored when those findings were made. 

The Times states FCRC hopes to begin construction early next year.  This information is consistent with statements made by FCRC at the November 3 District Service Cabinet meeting.  The start date for construction has been delayed several times by FCRC.  When the 2009 Modified General Project Plan was approved, Building #2 was expected to start in the fall of 2010. In the fall of 2010, FCRC stated they hoped to start construction in early 2011.  

A lot may have to be accomplished to start construction in the spring of 2012.  The Wall Street Journal states that FCRC does not yet have construction financing in place.  The developer is negotiating with union leaders who had anticipated members would receive higher hourly rates associated with on-site construction.  In order to build using modular techniques, FCRC apparently intends to build a factory to manufacture components, but a location for that factory has not been chosen yet. And other questions with implications for the existing community and the future residents of Building #2 remain unanswered.
