A pre-storm checklist, as required by the New York City Department of Buildings has been distributed to all contractors and this work is required to be completed it by the end of work on Saturday, Oct. 3. On Sunday, October 4th, there will be no construction-related activities. In the event of severe weather, we will have a limited crew that will be on-site to ensure that all precautions taken are maintained.
The Dyer Avenue Bridge (located between 31st and 33rd Streets on Dyer) work on behalf of the Port Authority is on-going. Sandblasting and painting of the bridge has begun and is scheduled to take place during normal construction hours. This phase of the project is expected to continue over the next three months.
As the project progresses, the roadway will be replaced and may require some road closures and additional night work. We will keep you updated as we learn more information. This entire project is expected to last approximately one year.
Workers will be in the Southwest lot (31st Street near Dyer Avenue) to clean up the site between 7 am and 6 pm on Saturday, October 3rd. This is not noisy work.
On Saturday, Sept. 19, a small crew will be removing materials and cleaning up in the Northeast lot (33rd Street near 10th Avenue) between 7 am and 5 pm.
450 West 33rd Street
Workers will continue drilling on 31st Street and 10th Avenue from 7 am to 5 pm on Saturday, October 3rd, weather permitting..
Next week, the demolition to the canopy of the front entrance continues and will occur between 6 pm and 2:30 am. This work cannot be cocooned so it is expected to be noisy and is performed in the after-hours to minimize any safety issues with pedestrian traffic. The stairs near the western side of Dyer Avenue at 31st Street will be demolished beginning Sept. 21 and the work will continue for several weeks from 6 pm to 2:30 am. The stairway can only be partially cocooned so it is expected to be noisy.
Starting next Monday October 5, 33rd Street will be closed from Dyer Avenue to 10th Avenue at night for crane work. The crane will be used to install steel on the roof of the building. During the week, the road will be closed at 10 pm until 6 am. On Saturdays and Sundays, the road will be shut down at 12:01 am until 1 pm. These closures will occur for the next two weeks.
As a reminder, the exterior renovation of 450 West 33rd Street continues and is performed Monday through Friday from 6:00pm to 2:30am. The planned time frames for facade concrete panel removals are as follows:
Dyer Avenue – Demolition work is complete except for Dyer Avenue stair shafts.
10th Avenue – Demolition work is complete except for 10th Avenue stair shafts and building canopy.
31st Street – Ongoing- 10/29/15.

Brookfield is continually taking measures to reduce the impact of noise by using sound mitigating blankets, doing work in enclosed areas and using electric, instead of pneumatic, equipment and other methods.
