What is Happening During the Next Two Weeks:

  • Daytime utility work is anticipated to commence for water service on the north side of 125th Street on Friday, July 15.  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.  Daytime utility work is anticipated to begin on Broadway in the coming weeks, pending the approval of permits.

Studebaker Building Façade Repairs and Roof Replacement

  • Removal of the spalled concrete wall at the east elevation.  Demolition will be limited to the northeast and southeast corners and will continue for approximately 2 weeks. 
  • Terra cotta repairs will continue at the south and southwest corner parapet wall for the next 2 weeks. 
  • Abatement of tar coating on the brick chimney on the east elevation and coping stone on the west elevation will be scheduled for the week of July 18.  This tar coating is non-friable, and the abatement work is limited to the roof level only.  All debris will be properly removed from the roof via the exterior scaffolding.
