claim, really open (unless people are moving possessions in).
And the building also faces several unpaid fines for construction violations.
The 34-story building got its first TCO from 9/30/16 to 10/30/16, with "58 outstanding requirements" and only ten floors partially included. It got its second TCO from 10/11/16 to 1/9/17, with "18 outstanding requirements" and another five floors partially included.
It got its third TCO (bottom) from 11/1/16 to 1/30/17, with "18 outstanding requirements" and several more floors (some were partially included previously):
OK TO RENEW TCO#3 FOR 90 DAYS ADDING 7TH TO 9TH FLOORS, 18TH & 19TH FLOORS MINUS HOIST APTS, AND ADD 5TH, 11 & 16TH FLOORS.The outstanding requirements including such things as final signoffs for plumbing, elevator, and electrical work, as well as signoffs for standpipes and sprinklers, and equipment use permits.
The building's owner, an LLC known as Atlantic Yards B2 Owner, was found in a violation 7/21/16 for failing to safeguard all persons and property, after a fire on the 15th floor. (This is separate from a fire on the 7th floor a month earlier, which as far as I can tell did not trigger a violation.) The owner did file a certificate of compliance, but has not paid a $25,000 fine.
A subcontractor, J.F. Stearns, was found in violation 8/15/16 for operating a crane in an unsafe manner, pinching a power source, and has a certification of compliance pending but has not paid a $10,300 fine.
If violating condition is not corrected or penalties paid, that could lead to additional enforcement actions and additional penalties, as well as disciplinary action against construction professionals.
Open DOB violations can present difficulties when trying to sell or refinancing a property. And if a civil penalty is not paid, an owner will be unable to pull further permits or file for a final Certificate of Occupancy.
