A question about Extell construction noise on East 14th Street
[EVG photo from September]
Extell Development's ongoing construction (and previous demolition and pile-driving) continues to make neighbors living near the site on East 14th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B unhappy. (Not sure what ever came of the Extell noise meeting back in September.)
As previously reported, Extell is putting up two 7-floor retail-residential buildings ... 500 E. 14th St. at Avenue A will have 106 residential units … while, further to the east, 524 E. 14th St. will house 44 residential units.
A nearby resident writes in: "Do you have any ideas for what to do about construction noise? Seems Extell is running a generator non-stop at their site." (To power the recently arrived lights?)
The resident tried the community email address that's posted on the East 14th Street field office ...
The resident said that the email address "amusingly" doesn't work. (We tried it too, and received a bounce back.)
The phone number listed does work, with a voice-mail with instructions on leaving a message about the construction. The outgoing message says that project personnel will "continually monitor site conditions ... to ensure that there are minimal disruptions to the community. Thank you for your cooperation."
