Extell Development is running a generator non-stop at their construction site on East 14th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B, according to residents who live adjacent to the property.
We heard from residents about construction noise several times ... most recently in December, and specifically about the generators that are running at the site closer to Avenue A.
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 resident whose apartment faces the construction shared this:
It is SO loud — with windows closed — that it keeps me up all night.
An email that I tried to send to the building company bounced back.
The community email address that's posted on the East 14th Street field office has apparently never worked... and calls to 311 haven't accomplished anything, residents claim.
A look through the blogger portals along East 14th Street reveals a whole lot of pumping going on inside the construction pit... (we have noted the standing water on the site, freezing and thawing)...
While works seems to be progressing fairly quickly at the nearby 438 E. 12th St. condo build, where there are five floors above ground, this project still looks to be focused on creating the foundation.
