Williamsburg Oopsy #1: Grand Street Edition

New, 3 comments

We last checked on the group of buildings coming down at Grand and Driggs in Williamsburg when the demolition started. The demolition almost went faster than planned this week, when part of one of the buildings going down started to take itself down. Brooklyn 11211 notes that the potential self-demolisher "was a three-story flat house, constructed in the mid-19th century. In all likelihood, the failure of this wall was related to vibrations caused by the ongoing demolition..." 11211 also notes that there's a Stop Work Order on the project for expired permits as well as, you know, work going on anyway that appears to have nothing to do with keeping the buildings from collapsing on themselves. The replacement here will be a "Monster Tower" designed by Karl Fischer.
