Floors to be Demolished at 535 Fourth
After strong winds blew down safety rails & form work at the Slate 535 Fourth Ave development site last month, the DOB stepped in and issued a partial SWO, with numerous Class One safety violations cited, along with work that did not conform to building plans. Now, according to DOB records, the entire ninth & tenth floors of the building will be demolished, along with slab removal on lower floors & column installation.
DEMOLITION OF ENTIRE 10TH AND 9TH FLOORS, PARTIAL SLAB REMOVAL OF FLOORS 1 THRU 8 AND INSTALLATION OF COLUMN 21 AS PART OF REMEDIAL WORK OF AN ONGOING CONSTRUCTION OF A 12 STORY NEW BUILDING.
Another fine job on Fourth!
