Our office has been in communication with Tishman Speyer, the Department of Buildings, and the Department of Environmental Protection regarding the After Hours Work at 422 Fulton Street. Many residents complained of excessive noise, especially late in the night, and the After Hour Variances were rescinded.
Since that time, Tishman Speyer has taken measures such as shrouding the lighting to include not just the hoist but the windows, lubricating the hoist and doing so on a weekly basis, adjusting the hoist speed in both direction so that the volume is consistent, and establishing a line of communication between the property management at 189 Schermerhorn Street. The modified hours are the following: Weekdays 6 PM – 10 PM, and Saturdays 9 AM – 5 PM. DEP inspected and monitored the decibel level last night, Thursday, March 30th.
The modifications have put the project in compliance and generating less noise. It is expected there will be no work this Saturday but that after hours construction will start again as early as Monday, April 3, 2017. Please contact the property manager at ORSID Realty if any issues arise so they can communicate with the night superintendent and construction manager. That phone number is 212-484-3775.
