One downside to stalled sites becoming active again: neighbor-infuriating construction. Residents of North Seventh Street in Williamsburg share their beef with the Brooklyn Paper. The four-story concrete building from Greenpoint developer Michael Siwiec, they say, is being built too close to their building, so the scaffolding hits their terraces and construction debris falls on their stuff. Not an unkown problem in the neighborhood. Or to the city, which still has 26 open violations against the building for failure to maintain a secure work site and improper chemical storage. Some of the neighbors in question happen to be residents of the Karl Fischer-designed, broken-windowed Sevenberry, now putting itself in its neighbors' shoes. Doesn't feel good, does it?
