“Dear PoPville,

A question someone sent in about legal construction hours has led me to a question of my own. I live in city center next to the new Conrad Hilton construction project on I st. Generally the noise has not been terrible and I’ve been able to deal with it but now they have added all night lighting that shines directly towards the building and is extremely bright. The lights are on literally until sunrise during hours there is definitely no work going on – is there any restriction on this?

The apartments come with built in shades that are semi transparent and let in a lot of light as it is. They are more difficult to replace than you’d imagine so changing them isn’t an option due to the design of the apt.”
