Things aren't starting out so well for Sam Chang and his latest hotel venture at 370 Canal Street just outside the Tribeca Historic District. As soon as Tritel Construction started digging out the foundation for a new 20-story building the neighbors on Lispenard Street started feeling the shakes. A quick call to the Department of Buildings got an inspector on site, and a stop-work order soon arrived. Now Mr. Chang and his BriSam gang have to keep 20 feet away from that building until they come up with a better plan. Dryvit probably won't do the trick here.
