From the Brooklyn Daily:
Homecrest neighbors and local leaders may have finally slain the “monstrosity” in their midst.
After a torturous back and forth over construction of an outsized house that a city panel allowed to proceed despite a judge’s order — and the city’s admission that the project should never have been approved in the first place — the Department of Buildings has ordered the work halted and threatens to revoke the permit unless the builder addresses the agency’s objections.
The move came as the result of a meeting with department officials where neighbors and local leaders pressed for action against what they see as a scofflaw project.
“The lack of good faith surrounding this permit is outrageous,” said Ed Jaworski, president of the Madison-Marine Civic Association, who was at the meeting.
Late last week the Buildings Department sent a notice of “intent to revoke approvals and permits” to the building’s architect, Shlomo Wygoda, demanding that the project be reviewed by a structural engineer, and that Wygoda submit a plan to protect adjacent buildings.
