Stop-work order at 195 Flatbush Avenue

A stop-work order has been served on 195 Flatbush Avenue by the New York City Department of Buildings. The property, under the control of Forest City Ratner, was previously the site of a Mobil gas station, and is the planned home of "B2," the Atlantic Yards project's promised first residential building.

The stop-work order cites a failure "to comply with site safety plan program" and the absence of a site safety manager, and notes a damaged, inadequate or absent safety net or guard rail. A correspondent reports that as recently as this morning, workers were excavating old gas tanks.

NoLandGrab: Though the Complaint Overview says things are "resolved," that's not necessarily the case. The word is used by DOB as an administrative tool to track complaint dispositioning.
