Construction Updates

For the week of 01/21, here is the latest update on activity for the 61 Banks Street Project:

 

Site Logistics
Typical construction deliveries to the project site will continue, including masonry and general building materials.

The exterior construction lift (temporary elevator) has been removed.
 

Parking Restrictions
Parking is restricted 24/7 on both the south AND north sides of Banks Street between Ritchie Court and Inner Lake Shore Drive.

Parking on Ritchie Ct. adjacent to the construction site remains closed 8am to 8pm daily.

All parking restrictions are anticipated to last until April 2019.

 

Construction Activity
With the construction lift gone, completion of the exterior masonry work is now resuming. Wall framing, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and drywall continue at the interior of the building. 
 
Please note that select trades may now need to work Saturdays through January. Assuming no extreme weather, field operations will conclude at our normal 6pm daily close of construction activities.

Although we attempt to be precise in identifying the start and completion dates of the various construction activities, there are a number of factors beyond our control. As a result, the start and completion dates may swing a few days in either direction, including the possibility of unplanned weekend work.  
 
Normal work hours: 8am – 6pm daily.
Extended work hours: 8am – 8pm (as needed based on weather delays)
Saturday work: through January (for select trades)

Monday 1/21 (Dr. Martin Luther King Day) – Normal Construction Work Day
