Building plans to construct a controversial homeless shelter in Glendale are moving ahead.
The Department of Buildings approved permits on Tuesday for the conversion of a vacant factory building into transitional housing, which the community has repeatedly opposed for years.
The dilapidated factory will have 103 units, smaller than the 125-room shelter originally proposed, encompassing 74,542 square feet of residential space, according to the filings with the Buildings Department. The four-story building will also be built with parking spaces for 33 vehicles, per plans.
In the meantime, the City found that currently operating homeless shelters are full of rats, insects and other wonderful violations.

Time to sell and move out.
a parking lot in a homeless shelter?
What the hell is going on in this city?
The lawsuit is still in progress, arguments will be heard next month. It's not over yet.
Interesting - a mezzanine is mentioned in the job descritpion, but is not indicated on the proposed Certificate of Occupancy (Schedule A).
Time to sell and move out.
and go where? as bad as nyc is, the rest of the country is pretty much brain dead.
I guess more and more counsel people are getting paid off for this --
Is Andy gonna have another NIMBY hissy fit in front of CB5 to demonstrate that he's not part of the tax and spend liberal problem?
It willwind up being relocated in Atlas Park.
It is time to move. Weve been fighting this shelter for well over 4 years and where has it gotten us? In the mean time this city has gone to the crapper. Theres been an increase in crime, illegals, construction, illegal conversions, taxes and a mayor who couldnt care less. This neighborhood has been going down long before the shelter, we just had cleaner sidewalks to help us lie to ourselves. The shelter is just the last nail. My mind is set, im leaving.
It's sad to see one of the last affordable decent neighborhoods in the city being destroyed. I have no issues with the shelter being built just issues with not regulating who would be allowed to stay there. Drug addicts, convicts, and the likes shouldn't be handed the opportunity to live in a neighborhood where we have to work long and hard to sustain. Regulations should be put into place an these areas should be treated as low income housing not a free for all. Homeless shelter is not the answer, NYC needs to be made affordable again. $1800 for a 1 bedroom in queens long island city isn't acceptable.
