Extell's Huge Lower East Side Development Is Halted...For Now

New, 4 comments

After neighbors complained that the ongoing excavation at the site of Extell's proposed 80-story tower at 250 South Street was causing the street to sink, the development company's been hit with a partial stop-work order, Bowery Boogie reports. Following complaints that the street had sunk between two and three inches in certain parts, workers poured an asphalt patch over the visibly affected area, which sounds like the structural equivalent of securing two-ton wood beams with paper clips.
As per Bowery Boogie, the DOB issued the stop-word order on Wednesday, but partially rescinded it later that day.
