Stop-Work order issued to the Trump SoHo Condo-Hotel
I wanted to let you know that yet another Stop-Work order has been issued to the Trump SoHo Condo-Hotel which GVSHP and the SoHo Alliance, among many others, have been fighting. In the wake of the fatal East Side crane collapse earlier this month, the City inspected the Trump SoHo crane and reportedly found cracks in the slab attaching the crane to the building and a non-working beacon light. Earlier this year there was a fatal accident at the site and a non-lethal accident involving glass windows from the building being shattered by loose construction equipment and raining down more than 20 stories to the street below. In both cases stop-work orders were issued and eventually lifted by the City. A decision in the legal challenge against the Trump SoHo Condo Hotel filed by the SoHo Alliance and supported by GVSHP is not expected until May.
