Interior abatement is now complete and abatement of the existing windows is scheduled to start in December. The packer truck on Washington Place is scheduled to be staged on Washington Square West for the majority of the project. Periodically, it may need to be moved to Washington Place for short periods of time. As per the Department of Transportation, a hoist to transport materials into the building will be erected on Washington Place where delivery trucks will be unloading materials. This will require the removal of the tree closest to the hoist location and the closure of the parking lane along Hayden Hall (at Washington Place). Interior demolition is scheduled to continue through December and installation of new windows is scheduled to start in January.
