Despite court orders, and split decisions, well – covered – by – the – media, SJP Properties continues to build at 200 Amsterdam regardless of the illegality of their work. Neighbors, electeds and advocates even recently held a rally (video link) yet work continued. These efforts took a respite on Wednesday however after the DOB issued a Partial Stop Work Order due to falling construction materials on the site. For the time being, the developer is only allowed to work on the INSIDE of the building. Construction is happening at an active intersection between Amsterdam Avenue, and the entrance to Lincoln Towers making passage difficult for the community. The site restrictions are apparently leading to difficulties in maintaining a safe work environment.
We will update this post when more information becomes available.
