June 21, 2018,
We are writing to let you know that on Saturday, June 23, 2018, we will need to close East 83rd Street between East End and York Avenues as well as all lanes on East End Avenue except for one south bound and one north bound lane from 82nd to 84th Streets. We will need to have a crane onsite on the date noted above to lift the generator and rooftop chillers for the new building at 590 East 83rd Street. PLEASE NOTE: Exceptionally this closure is scheduled to run from 5:00 AM to 10:00 PM, for one day only, with Sunday, June 24, as the back-up date. As always, this is dependent upon permit approval. The alternate weekend is June 30 and July 1.
Please note: THIS IS DEPENDENT UPON WEATHER AND PERMIT APPROVAL.
The longer than usual closure is needed to ensure that the work can be completed in one day, weather permitting. The extended period is required because of longer required set up time for the rig.
Once the generator and chillers have been lifted, we do not anticipate the need for additional crane-related street closings.
Please see below for a summary construction alert for this weekend.
We are pleased to confirm again that work on the building is proceeding on schedule, toward the planned opening in September 2019. You may have noticed that we are continuing to enclose more of the structure, and that will mean we are required to keep on more lights overnight for safety reasons. We are very much aware of the impact on our neighbors of lights on the site, and we will be shielding them wherever possible.
We are less than 12 months from the anticipated completion of construction, and we sincerely thank you, once again, for your patience with the project.
With best regards,
Director of Construction and Facilities
