Stalled Development in the 39th Council District

We need to make these sites into assets for the community. Many of these developments are causing real hazards for their neighbors, with fences falling down on sidewalks, loose construction debris that can become deadly in high winds, and unsecured sites that are dangerous for children and an invitation to squatting.

Help the effort to convert local blight to community benefit by providing feedback and tracking the progress of each site.
Leave comments below on a individual site to update us on the conditions. If you call 311 about an issue, please leave a complaint number in the comment.

Status: Complaints of unsafe working conditions 7/2/10, full stop work order; complaint of work continuing with full stop work order, no ongoing work at time of inspection 7/2/10; EBC violation for unsafe conditions 7/2/10.

Background: Started in 2007, this building has had numerous complaints and violations, principally concerning site safety. A Stop Work Order was issued in September 2009 due to inadequate scaffolding, lack of netting, and lack of a sidewalk shed. Remedial repairs were undertaken and the SWO was rescinded in December.
