The Modern, which has managed to make itself one of the more watched developments in Williamsburg during its gestation phase, is set to rock and roll again. Today's Post reports that the Stop Work Order that had frozen the building after there were problems of undermining the building next door, busting a sewer line and possibly damaging the L Train tunnel, has been lifted. Early neighborhood react: "This is the second stop work order that the DOB has lifted at this site with the violations not being fixed." Apparently, there's "a crack" in the building next door and there will be "drilling and pile driving while the violation for failure to shore up this property is unresolved." Can a crack monitor be far behind?
