Unsafe Conditions on site of 535 Carlton

Corner of Dean & Carlton
December 7, 2015 - 1:31pm

this was sent to me from a building neighbor at 560 Dean St.

"we were able to file a complaint for unsafe conditions. D and I witnessed construction workers doing drugs then going back on the job. Constructing a building under the influence makes us super nervous with the potential repercussions being incredibly scary.


other neighbors have reported witnessing construction workers smoking on our stoop and urinating in our basement stairwell. My husband & I have seen them smoking joints in the playground, and drinking beer on the street - at lunch time.

Construction cuts Fios cables then won't let technicians on site to fix it

Received from my neighbor this evening

Hello Everyone,

As I am sure many of you have now noticed, the tv Internet (and perhaps phone?) is out in our building. I

If you have a different carrier, good for you :)

I have been on the phone with Verizon. A technician came out this afternoon but couldn't resolve any issues because the poll that houses all of the necessary wiring and information is within the construction site walls and they were not able to get access. The tech doesn't know what the issue is or how to resolve this until they can see what's happening at the poll site.

Dangerous attractive nuisance at 550 Vanderbilt

550 Vanderbilt on Dean Street near the Vanderbilt intersection
November 24, 2015 - 9:53pm

There is a dangerous attractive nuisance at the 550 Vanderbilt site.  A door has been left open into the site approximately where the water main break was today, apparently.
The door gives entrance to the entire construction site.  Immediately inside the door is a large pit.  The workers on the 550 Vanderbilt building are protected from the pit by a warning sign and a streamer of sorts.  The pit is readily accessible from the street, though.

Dean Street jammed with cars; Noise from traffic increased by wall; Carlton Avenue closed without notice

Dean Street and Carlton Avenue
November 16, 2015 - 8:00pm

Carlton Avenue was closed without notice last night and as a result Dean Street was turned into a traffic jam.  It is now a regular occurrence that Dean Street from Carlton to Vanderbilt is jammed.  
At some points in the week the movement across Vanderbilt Avenue on Dean Street is failed as an intersection because cars take minutes to get through the intersection.

Dust from 535 Carlton Avenue

November 17, 2015 - 9:37pm

A resident on Dean forwarded me this complaint and the attached photo.  She writes: "I walked by this morning and thought, "What are we breathing?"  
The photo shows dust emanating from the construction site.  It rises in a plume and appears to blow southwest toward homes.  According to the witness, the source was drilling which stirred dust into the air. 
The location was the 535 Carlton Avenue construction site.  

Dean Street block closed without notice for one day

Due to work in the street at the Dean and Vanderbilt intersection, Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt was closed today.   According to multiple workers involved with the work, it was closed all day and re-opened around 2:15.  
According to the workers, the work being executed was electrical work in the street for 550 Vanderbilt.  The work was not Con Ed.  There was no notice of this work, or the closure of the street by either the Pacific Park developers or the State.  

Greenland/FCRC fail to disclose 5 am start time of installation of 10 murals; bike lanes blocked Thursday the 13th

Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt
August 15, 2015 - 5:00am

Greenland/FCRC Partners failed to give notice to the residents on Dean Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt Avenues that installation of the Pacific Park Arts murals would start at 5 am, and that the use of hydraulic lifts during that time could be noisy.  The community notice disseminated is attached.  It says simply that the street would be closed for the day.  Because the notice was thin in detail, on Tuesday preceding the event I asked a FCRC representative for any additional information they could provide.

Concrete delivery blocks Dean/Vanderbilt intersection; information about work couldn't be more limited

In and around the Dean/Vanderbilt intersection
August 13, 2015 - 3:30pm

A large delivery of concrete was made to the 550 Vanderbilt site using an entrance to the site in the Dean/Vanderbilt intersection rather than the Pacific Street entrance.  To use the entrance the trucks had to be backed through the gate, requiring the closure of the Vanderbilt/Dean intersection with the use of flaggers.  A concrete truck was also witnessed entering the Pacific Street entrance from Vanderbilt via the north bound traffic lane.

Posillico Tully truck parked in no standing zone; undisclosed/illegal method of entering site detailed

South Portland Avenue
August 18, 2015 - 8:15am

A Posillico Tully truck was standing/parked in a no standing zone on South Portland Avenue below Atlantic Terrace waiting to enter the Atlantic Avenue work area this morning.  Specifically, the truck was located on the northeast corner of the Atlantic Avenue/South Portland intersection pointed in the direction of the traffic.  South Portland is not a legal truck route and is not included in the truck protocols as a truck route, so the truck was not only parked illegally it was on an illegal route.  It was standing/parked right below a residential condominium complex.
