During the seemingly never-ending construction of the six-floor, six-unit residence rising from a former parking lot at 277 E. Seventh St. near Avenue D, we've heard a fair share of grumbling from neighbors.
This construction is unreal. They start LOUD at exactly 7 am every day. I'm not sure what exactly they're doing that takes so long with such little progress.
I think they might actually be building their own powertools to use.
The worst of the noise (yelling, banging, throwing things off high floors) starts right at 7am and lasts until 8:30 or so. The rest of the day, the guys are mostly looking at their cell phones.
Construction achieved a new milestone yesterday. A neighbor reported that the workers were blasting music from inside the under-contruction building... when they weren't texting or talking on the phone.
