The residents of the Financial District's 2 Gold Street were originally given a date of March 1, 2013, to return to their building following the repair of damage from Hurricane Sandy. Some frustrated tenants filed a class-action lawsuit against developer TF Cornerstone and 2 Gold, alleging "negligence relating to their failure to mitigate damages following the storm." The latest building update is probably too little, too late to calm those plaintiffs, but it's a small bit of good news regardless: tenants of 2 Gold will probably be able to go home two weeks earlier than previously announced. Here's the latest memo from building management:
We are happy to report that we have received several pieces of new equipment that are critical to the final repair of 2 Gold Street. The building will be fully repaired sooner than anticipated. We are confident that we will receive a green sticker from the Department of Buildings, authorizing full permission to re-occupy the building, on or before February 15, 2013. To all of our tenants, we extend our deepest thanks for your patience as we repair and improve the building, and we look forward to welcoming you home. Let's hope the DOB comes through with that sticker in a timely fashion.
