Serious accidents over the weekend at the construction sites for the Trump SoHo 'Condo-Hotel' and the Superior Ink development
As you may have heard, there were serious accidents over the weekend at the construction sites for the Trump SoHo 'Condo-Hotel' and the Superior Ink development -- two projects GVSHP has a long history with.
GVSHP has received an increasing number of reports of unsafe construction work, and of course just a few weeks ago there was a fatal accident at the Trump site. If you see what you believe to be unsafe construction practices or conditions on any site, you can call 311 to report it, and call 911 if you see anything which you believe is an emergency. If you do report unsafe conditions, we strongly recommend you get a complaint number so you can be sure your complaint has been logged and the city's response can be tracked.
For more information about the construction accidents and the potential consequences, see New York Sun and New York Daily News.
