Two violations were served (see above) & as of today, one of the violations served has finally made its way to the Property Profile Overview:
(Class One - Immediately Hazardous):
|WORK W/O A PERMIT. NOTED AT TIME OF INSPECTION SECTION OF EXTERIOR WALL AT 1ST FL |
WALL CUT & MASONRY UNITS REMOVED DOOR. NO PERMITS OBTAIN FOR ANY WORK BEING
PERFORMED AT LOCATION. STOP ALL WO
Strangely, no mention of the other, major "work" at the site.
It's not evident from the photograph above, but if you're on the street, you can see clear through the top front windows to the backyard - the rear wall is completely gone.
Sadly, this kind of stuff is all too common. I know many people who've been impacted by neighboring, often adjacent construction malpractice, and have suffered the emotional stresses & financial anxiety caused by structural damage to their homes. This goes on city-wide. How about the City throwing the book big time at developers that display such indifference to building regulations, the safety of workers on site, and the safety & sanctity of neighbors & their homes? The current levels of fines imposed on errant developers (when they're actually imposed at all) are completely inadequate.
