Here’s what you can expect to see on site in the next two weeks:

This week, the construction crew will be pouring the 8th floor deck in the tower portion of the site and forming the 9th floor deck. They are also forming the first floor deck of the “C” section (the southern portion next to 1 Pierrepoint). We’ll continue with general housekeeping (cleanup and collection of trash and construction debris) and implementing site safety protocols. There is no anticipated off-site utility work or street closures.

Next week (starting 7/30), the crew will be pouring the first floor deck of the “C” portion. They will continue to install the “Cocoon” system on the tower to wrap the upper floors under construction, as a safety measure.  No street closures are anticipated.

It’s been a couple of weeks since our last update.  Hope everyone enjoyed Memorial Day Weekend!  Things are moving along on site.  ConEd finished their street work and the final fencing is installed along Clinton Street.  We are completely done with the foundations portion of the project and are starting to bring the last floors of the basement up to grade.  We have poured up to the 2nd floor and expect to pour the 3rd floor this week.  Things are happening quickly!

With the bad weather last week, things maybe seemed a little dull around the site.  But we made some good headway in our foundation area last week and the second floor deck was formed.  This week, there will be a lot of concrete coming on site before we head into the holiday weekend.  The weather is much better this week, so we’re taking advantage of that.

Things are getting busy on site.  Utility work started last week and will continue for the next two to three weeks.  The crane is fully operational so don’t be alarmed when you see it moving – it’s actually supposed to spin in the wind!  (It’s called weathervaning, which is a safety feature to relieve stress from the weather.)  We are working on the Mezzanine floor for the library and the second floor of the residential tower right now, which you’ll see sticking up above the construction fence.

The tower crane was installed this past weekend.  Last Friday, we poured the first third of the first floor and next week we will pour another third.  This week, you’ll see the sidewalk bridges installed on Cadman Plaza West.  There will be a lot of changes to the site over the next several weeks as we change over from doing foundation work to building the structure of the building.

Good things are on the horizon for this week.  We plan to pour a lot of concrete in the next week and a half so that 2/3 of the building will be at grade.  Weather permitting, our crane will be installed this weekend.  Our goal is to have the crane erected before the NYC Bike Tour, which happens on Sunday, May 6th.  Cadman Plaza West will be closed that day to all vehicles and pedestrians and you’ll see “Detour” signs on Cadman that day.  Once the crane is on site, we will also start installing our sidewalk bridges and pedestrian lane closures for Clinton Street.  The east side of Clinton Street will be closed to pedestrians once this goes up, so please plan ahead.

This week, we are pouring the Mat “A” and “B” cellar slabs.  DOT has approved our permits to install the Tower Crane, which will be erected by the end of this weekend, weather permitting.  This will be a major tool to help the team build this building!
