Building shaking pretty significantly from parking lot construction
Our building is shaking vigorously over the last few days from the parking lot work. It's intense and seems unsafe.
For the past 3-4 days the building has been shaking due to construction work conducted on the other side of the street (Dean st between Carlton st and Vanderbilt ave). I noticed some cracks at the top of our facade and fear for the safety and structural integrity of our building.
Since Monday, 8/27, our building has experienced severe vibrations and rattling due to heavy construction in lot 1129. THe integrity of our building is being jeopardized by the construction work. There is a disturbing level of noise too in addition to dust becoming airborne and affecting public health.
I was awoken at 7am this morning to our entire building shaking. Glasses were rattling and pictures on the wall were askew. As I typed my 311 complaint I could feel my desk vibrating like a low rumble. The yellow front loader sized jackhammer was within 75' of my front windows. I fear for the integrity/stability of my building. Not to mention water mains and other pipes. Damage done by this sort of repeated tremor will not be immediately obvious but could impact us in coming months/years.
For the past two days, the entire building at 626 Dean Street has been shaking. My apartment spans the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building and the floors, windows, railings, picture frames and glassware have been shaking and rattling from 7am onward due to the construction taking place in the parking lot site immediately across Dean Street.
While the noise is bothersome, the larger issue here is the danger of structural damage to the building -- damage that may not present itself until construction is complete and the crews responsible long gone.

Father pushing baby pram & pedestrians (with back to traffic so they can’t see traffic coming at them) again forced into traffic lanes by arena construction workers blocking the entire sidewalk. The west side of 6th between Dean St & Pacific is closed. The supervisor just stands there & takes pictures of photographer instead of tending to the safety of residents.
Previous & continued disregard for pedestrian safety.
