Extell to Dismantle the Tower Crane at One Manhattan Square

Posted on: March 14th, 2018 at 5:14 am by

After more than two years on the job, the tower crane affixed to Extell’s One Manhattan Square is ready to come down. It’s mere days from dismantling.

To accomplish the task of removing the 200-foot vehicle, construction management firm LendLease is closing off Pike Slip for three days starting Friday night at 10pm and ending Monday at 5am. Here’s how it’ll affect the neighborhood:

  • Westbound traffic alternate route is Market Slip.
  • Eastbound traffic alternate route is either Rutgers Slip or Montgomery Street.
  • Southbound M15 buses will use the intersection of Rutgers and Cherry Streets for the turnaround.

Below is the map provided in the media advisory.
