Amidst the seemingly never-ending construction in the Downtown area, the Four Seasons hotel and private residences project at 30 Park Place aims to limit its share of noise until the projected project completion date in June 2016.
Eric Reid, Four Seasons construction manager at Tishman Construction, spoke at a Community Board 1’s Financial District meeting last week to specifically address the ways in which more efficient construction methods could be used to reduce noise levels. Methods included only one lane closure, minimized truck loading and less equipment usage, all possible during night construction that runs from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
The board’s committee approved the project’s night construction by agreeing to write a letter of acknowledgement to the city Dept. of Buildings, which wanted a show of support from the community board. The Four Seasons night construction is a part of the project’s precast panel erection phase in which approximately six concrete panels will be erected each night.
The 82-story building will have nearly 200 hotel rooms, 157 residences and a community park.
The project has been completed to the 40th floor, according to Dara McQuillan, a spokesman for Silverstein Properties, the developer of the project.
