The unfinished house is located at 3177 Glennon Place. The developer built three houses at the location, only to learn that his plans did not comply with the area’s zoning. One of the homes was torn down and one was completed. 3177 Glennon Place remains in limbo, a haven for graffiti and teen drinking.
Senator Klein’s office has contacted New York Community Bank, the bank that is financing the project, requesting that they take some action and get the house secured from vandals who are entering at night. Klein’s office recently received a response from the builder, Yaron Hershco, and his company Autumn Equities.
The letter stated that the Department of Buildings originally issued permits for three 1-family homes. When those permits were revoked, Herscho stated in the letter to Klein that he lost about $500,000 to $600,000. The letter also said Herscho was fined about $150,000 because he cut down some trees near that location.
The architect self certified the project, a fact the attorney’s letter neglects to address.
