Contractors are scheduled to be on site beginning Monday, Dec. 17 to start preliminary work on the student commons construction. This initial phase of construction will focus on preparing and securing the site. A perimeter fence surrounding the entire construction site and a sidewalk protection canopy will be installed.
Waldo Avenue Parking
Several parking spaces on Waldo Avenue will be unavailable while materials for the fence and canopy are being unloaded. During this process, parking spaces equal to the number of displaced spaces on Waldo Avenue will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis in the College’s Broadway parking facility.
The number of spaces currently available will be posted on a sign outside of the parking facility entrance on Manhattan College Parkway. If spaces are available, local residents should pull in and tell the officer at the entry booth that they are residents who normally park on Waldo Avenue. Proof of residency in one of the properties along Waldo Avenue in the immediate vicinity of the construction site is required. Parking permits given out for these spaces will be valid until 9 a.m. on the following business day.
As part of the construction process, buildings neighboring the site need to be surveyed to determine existing conditions. That process will begin shortly, and letters are being delivered to these properties with further information.
