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.

336 Dahill Road, Kensington

(between 37th Street and 15th Avenue)

Project Type: New building

Project Description: construction of new 5 story, 4-unit building (MID-2008)

Status: Stalled construction site, excavation backfilled

Background: The project was initiated in 2007. The demolition damaged the walls and chimney of the adjacent home, and water seeped into the basement. A Stop Work Order was issued in April 2008. The excavation was backfilled. Violations were issued due to site safety and damaged fencing. In July 2009 the site was declared Stalled and noted as abandoned.

An Emergency Declaration was issued 8/24/2009 to grade and fence the site, noting “Open Unbraced Foundation Past the Point of Influence.” The site was classified as unsafe for months. The owner was non-compliant. The work was completed by HPD and the site was found safe 1/12/2010.

All permits are expired.

  1. Who and why were they permitted to build 3 stories higher than the neighboring buildings? (they aren't on a corner)
