Excavation causes undermining in Brooklyn
From Pardon Me for Asking:
Late last week, excavation work for a new single family building at number 467 Union Street caused severe structural cracks to the neighboring buildings at 463 and 465 Union Street. In response, NYC Department Of Buildings imposed a complete Stop Work Order for number 467 and served a Vacate Order to number 465.
Once featured as a House Of The Day on Brownstoner, the original building at 467 Union Street was marketed by Corcoran as a teardown. After some time on the market, it was eventually sold for $377,000 in March 2012 to Jill and John Bouratoglou, the husband and wife team behind Bouratoglou Architect, PC. Shortly afterwards, permits were filed with NYC Department Of Buildings for a four-story, one family house.
Work on the site began in early June 2012. Almost immediately, there was trouble.
