35 Cooper Square: Demolition Will Continue Once Permits Are Paid for
Last week, we reported that the demolition of our across-the-street neighbor 35 Cooper Square had been halted due to a "failure to safeguard public and property affected by construction operations." However, we've received word today that it was simply an issue of acquiring, and paying for, the correct permits.
Before the site is able to begin further work or demolition, the DOB assured us that they first have to pay fees for the particular permits they've filed. After said permits are paid for, they'll have the green light to proceed forward with demolition. Sad.
