Mold From Leaking Water Closes Roosevelt Island Cultural Center For Repairs & Maintenance Says RIOC From January 2- February 5, 2018

According to this advisory today from the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RICO):

Please be advised that The Cultural Center will be closed for planned maintenance & repairs from January 2nd – February 5th 2018. During this time no access shall be granted to the space. We thank you in advance for you cooperation.

In response my November 10 inquiry following the November 9 RIOC Real Estate Advisory Committee (REDAC) meeting which discussed the Cultural Center mold issue, RIOC Vice President Of Operations Shelton Haynes replied:
As mentioned in the REDAC meeting last week, RIOC had the Cultural Center tested for mold that developed because of recurring leaks over a period of time. The test results revealed a low-grade, non-harmful, mold located in multiple rooms of the facility. RIOC has taken measures to remediate the mold out of an abundance of caution to our occupants and patrons of the Cultural Center. A portion was remediated in late October and the second phase will occur when the building is unoccupied in January. 
Here is the RIOC REDAC meeting discussion with RIOC Engineering Consultant Mike Russo, Mr. Haynes and Roosevelt Island Jewish Congregation (RIJC) President Nina Lubin.

The RIJC is one of the occupants of the Cultural Center, together with the Main Street Theatre & Dance Alliance among others, who will not be able to use the space during the mold remediation.

The Cultural Center had been closed for almost 3 years following  the 2012Hurricane Sandy flooding and has undergone extensive renovation during that time.
