It appears, not much, if anything.
I wasn't there (though I wish I could have been), but according to the Town & Village article on the February 18th meeting, "End in Sight for Construction Project," no vital information was forthcoming. Just the title chosen--"End in Sight for Construction Project"--was not eye-opening, as, of course, the end is always in sight for any project here in Stuy Town (except fixing the buildings affected by Hurricane Sandy), and it was already known that the spring or summer would be the "end in sight" for this particular one. So yawn on the title.
Apparently, "major construction" will be finished in May, with completion set for August.
And you can bet disruptive work will be done on Saturdays eventually:
"Andrew Kane of CW Capital said that updates are now being posted in
individual buildings and that work starts at around 8:30 a.m. during the
week. While they are trying to push all their work to during the week,
weekend work is sometimes unavoidable, said Kane."
Questions about rent rebates during this time were not answered by CW and Compass Rock representatives, but this info wasn't in the Town & Village article. And nothing at all was mentioned about Councilman Garodnick challenging the acceptance of Saturday work hours for this project. (Which may mean that he didn't challenge such potential plans, despite being a sponsor of legislation to rein in such abuses.)
A couple of days later, a blue tarp covered a contaminated area of soil (soil samples were taken to be tested a week earlier), but nothing about this test appears to have been mentioned at the meeting. One wonders if CWC and CR knew the results as they were speaking to tenants on February 18th.
Councilman Dan Garodnick stated of CWCapital and CompassRock after the meeting that, "It’s important for them to share information about the project." Which means that tenants should already know the results of the soil testing and why a blue tarp was necessary over part of the ground.
