From Curbed, who got around to looking up the violations on the crane collapse site before I did:
May 29: Stop Work Order fully rescinded.
May 20: A complaint that a crane platform extends over the sidewalk. No problems found.
May 17: Complaint of debris falling on the sidewalk. Inspection four days later finds no problem.
May 16: Stop Work Order on a standpipe is rescinded.
May 13: Complaint that debris was falling on the sidewalk.
May 7: Stop Work Order on part of the site for failing to protect adjacent property.April 23: Stop Work Order Issued on crane for "low boom limit switch & a ceal is leaking."
April 22: An entry that crane "did not pass test load," followed by a notation on April 23 that it did.
December 13, 2007: Complaint about an open gate leading to a 20 drop from the sidewalk. Inspection the next day found the fence was down for surveying.
Also from Curbed:
Hey, remember when the Buildings Department announced that it was easing the safeguards put in place following the deadly crane collapse 10 weeks ago in Turtle Bay? You probably do, because it was only two days ago. Oopsie.
From the Daily News:
City OKed condo construction at collapse site to get free school built
Last year, the city leased the rights of the land to the DeMatteis Organizations and the Mattone Group for $111.9 million.
Under the agreement, the developers were allowed to build a 32-story residential tower in exchange for assuming the $45 million cost of building the new East Side Middle School.
