CurbedWire: Waiting on a Diamond, Hotel Won't Stop Working

New, 1 comment

MIDTOWN?Mayor Bloomberg attended the ground-breaking, but Extell's International Gem Tower?the Diamond District game-changing commercial condo building?still isn't a sure thing. The 32-story building, with a diamond-studded exterior, still needs construction financing. Meanwhile, the foundation waits patiently. [CurbedWire Inbox]

EAST VILLAGE?Hotel developer Sam Chang's view-killing project at 132 Fourth Avenue near Union Square got slapped with a stop work order in mid-July for some general safety abuses (and there's still that whole height thing), but a neighbor says the crew is being naughty. A complaint filed July 30 alleges workers doing workmanlike things high up in the building, but it doesn't look like the DOB has followed up yet. [CurbedWire Staff]
