Current Project Update

September 11, 2019 

Installation of the sidewalk bridge will begin the week of September 2 and continue the week of September 9.

Scope of Work

  • As in most Local Law 11 cases, work will be performed by contractors using swing scaffold to lower themselves down the side of the building.
  • Facade repairs will require the occasional grinding and removal of mortar and masonry. This work is done with small hand tools and will create some noise. A minimal amount of dust will be generated in the area immediately surrounding the work.
  • If any asbestos containing material, or ACM, is detected in the mastic that lies behind the brick facade, contractors will implement¬†safe abatement protocols to securely dispose of it.
  • Sidewalk bridging will be installed on Broadway and Lafayette Street around the perimeter of the building in September to protect pedestrian traffic.
