Night Construction Schedule for Current Week

September 19, 2014

Additional testing and probing on the façade of 450 W. 33rd Street along 33rd Street at Dyer Avenue within the next two weeks and will provide updates as to our progress.

On Tuesday, September 23rd, in the early morning hours, we will be moving an additional span into place.


There is no drilling, chopping, or excavation work planned for this coming weekend.

On Saturday, September 20 from 7:00am to 9:00pm, a small crew will begin assembling the next span scheduled to be set in place.

This coming week from Monday through Friday, we will continue taking overweight deliveries during late evening/early morning hours and we will continue to make every effort to minimize the impacts of these deliveries.

Excavation to widen the stair shaft in the northeast lot continues during normal construction hours and should be wrapping up over the next week.

450 West 33rd Street

Beginning in mid-November, the exterior renovation of 450 West 33rd Street will commence and include a new pleated glass facade and new retail storefronts along the streetscape.

The planned time frames for façade concrete panel removals are as follows:
  • Dyer Avenue: 11/24/14 4/27/15
  • 10th Avenue: 3/11/15 8/7/15
  • 31st Street: 7/22/15 8/27/15
  • 33rd Street: 10/19/15 12/16/15
  • This Saturday, September 20, we will be performing selected concrete removal on the roof as preparation for the upcoming façade work. It will take place from 7 am to 4 pm.

    The crew will be using electric, not pneumatic tools to avoid using loud generators.

Please note that all activities for the residential tower in the bus lot located on West 33rd Street (in the back of 440 West 34th Street) are not associated with Brookfield.
