Vibrations caused by the work on Pacific

Location:

submitted for neighbor who sent this email directly to communityliaison@atlanticyards.com. "I live at 560 Dean Street. I have experienced severe vibrations in our building caused by the work they are doing on Pacific. I have actually gone outside during the vibrations to see the cause, and it appears that the vibrations occur when they are using the large drill-like machine on Pacific that is shoring up the wall. These vibrations are occurring every day, sometimes for minutes at a time.

Here we go again. Late night noise and construction

Location: 
Carlton Avenue at Pacific Street
When: 
November 29, 2012 - 3:03am

Three issues. (only noise issues were reported to 311 last night) For the past couple weeks, there has been construction work which I usually notice around 2:00 a.m. Very loud, includes beeping trucks and loud equipment which I can't identify resulting in a sound similar to a vacuum cleaner. This work seems to be being conducted by the DOT. Second issue is ongoing street cleaning also around 2:00 a.m. which is extremely loud and ongoing. The street cleaning seems to coincide with Barclay Center events. The hours should be restricted.

Questions to be answered at Thursday's presentation of plans for B2

According to an article in today's New York Times, Forest City Ratner Companies has chosen to build the first residential building at Atlantic Yards using modular construction. At 32 stories, B2 will be the tallest modular building in the world. Groundbreaking for B2 has been scheduled for December 18.

The use of modular construction has been chosen as a means to reduce costs not only on B2, but throughout the remaining Atlantic Yards buildings. The project's approval in 2006, as well as its revised plan of 2009, anticipated conventional construction techniques would be used when considering Atlantic Yards' use of public subsidies and overall feasibility. In the Times article Thomas Hanrahan, dean of Pratt Institute's architecture school states, "The question is: Will the savings be passed on to the public in some form?" 

With a presentation on the design of B2 scheduled for Thursday of this week, other outstanding questions about the building may finally be answered a short three weeks before the building's groundbreaking.

 

What are the construction plans for B2?

The 2009 Modified General Project Plan (MGPP) left B2 without publicly-disclosed construction plans. The original arena block plans anticipated office and residential towers integrated with the arena and built in quick succession.  B2 was to be complete one month after the arena, with the entire block complete about a year after the arena opening.  Now to construct B2 FCRC must contend with traffic and pedestrian demands generated by an operating arena next door.  And because of the use of much of the remaining area FCRC controls for arena patron and broadcast uplink surface parking, there are fewer locations available for construction staging than anticipated when the plans for construction were originally approved in 2006.  This may mean sidewalk and lane closures are more likely at the same time that demands on local streets and sidewalks have increased.
