Current Phase of Construction: Excavation and Foundation:

  • Noisy work should be expected during most days during this phase of construction
  • Excavation and foundation is anticipated to be complete by the end of the third quarter of 2022

What is Happening During the Next Two Weeks:

  • Utility work on 125th Street is almost complete and will be backfilled.  Once complete, utility work will begin on Broadway.  Work will involve the contractor saw cutting and breaking up the street to install the new building utility connections (for future water and sanitary) by using jackhammers, road saw, and backhoe.  A dump truck will be used to remove material. 
  • Installation of soil plugs which includes the drilling of metal sleeves and injecting concrete
  • Concrete trucks will be used to install the ejector pits and elevator pit
  • Underground utility installation for the building has commenced
  • Excavator will be used to complete site grading and clean up


Studebaker Building Façade Repairs and Roof Replacement

  • Removal of the spalled concrete wall at the east elevation will continue for the next 2-3 weeks, weather permitting.  Work will take place at the southern half of the east elevation starting from the 6th floor down to the ground level.   Removal of spalled concrete requires chipping and some jackhammering, and it will take approximately 1-2 days per floor.
  • Reconstruction of the east parapet wall is continuing.  This is mostly quiet work.
  • Rebricking of inboard facing wythe of brick at the south parapet wall is continuing.   This is mostly quiet work.
