From the sublime to the ridiculous. Demolition work next door began over a year ago, and today the shell of the boutique condo building has yet to reach its full height (one more floor plus penthouse still to go!). A cold winter & a good measure of incompetence have slowed the pace of construction . We've had backyard subsidence (not yet fixed) and basement flooding, and cracks in the entrance to the basement. Can we please move this sodding farce along?
