Broad Channel's extra story
Here we are in Broad Channel on Cross Bay Blvd at East 9th Road. I noticed this building which had been started years ago has stalled out.
Looking on the DOB's website, we find that the property has had a couple of stop work orders in place since 2009. Both are for a defective/expired fence. But that seems like an easy enough thing to get resolved. Maybe there's another issue here.
Let's look at what is supposed to be built here. Permits issued in 2010 to developer/engineer Steve Chon were for a one-story retail building containing 3 stores.
Looks like the construction crew forgot to stop at one story. This is why there's a relatively recent complaint from 9/2012. I'm sure DOB will get around to inspecting it eventually...
