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.

308 14th Street, Park Slope

(between 5th and 6th Avenues)

Project Type: New building

Project Description: Demolition, construction of new 5 story residential building

Status: Stalled construction site

Background: This building project was initiated in 2005. Demolition in 2006 caused damage to the adjoining home’s wall, and a Stop Work Order was issued. After being rescinded, four more SWOs have been issued; issues included expired demolition permits, failure to provide an adequate fence and overhead protection, and damage to the adjacent property.

In April 2009 the site was declared Stalled. The demolition had been completed to the foundation stage and a small portion of an external superstructure was built. The excavation was deteriorating but there was no immediate risk and the fence was secure. There are 13 active violations.
