Information for Neighbors

 

Project Timeline
 

  • The project is scheduled to begin in summer 2014 and continue through the spring of 2016.
  • Initial renovations will include abatement, demolition, and related debris removal.
  • Between summer 2014 and spring 2015, work will entail interior demolition, exterior roof demolition, facade restoration, window replacement work, material removals and deliveries, and periodic use of packer trucks to grind debris. This phase will also involve installation of a new foundation on the the adjoining lot, concrete and steel installation, and the building fit-out.
  • Interior renovations will continue throughout the duration of the project.

Scope of Work

 

  • The project consists of internal renovation, facade restoration, roof work, installation of new windows, the erection of a new building on an adjoining lot, and sidewalk replacement.
  • Periodic asbestos abatement will require the use of specialized disposal truck.
  • Perdiodic use of a packer truck will be required to grind debris as it is removed.
  • A partial lane closure will likely be requested for the south side of East 4th Street alongside 383 Lafayette and its adjoining lot to account for construction staging (dumpster placement, truck loading, crane use, hoist operation, materials deliveries, etc). This will shift pedestrian traffic to the north side of East 4th Street for the duration of the project. Plywood barriers will be installed for safety.
  • A new sidewalk shed will be erected around the site's perimeter on Lafayette Street and East 4th Street.
