Ever since the Buildings Department slapped a stop-work order on Mr. Mezzanine Scarano's condo conversion at 333 Carroll Street in Carroll Gardens, the site has been in construction limbo. But hold on! What's this? New permits have been issued just two days ago. Could it be? Please tell me Buildings Commissioner Patricia Lancaster and the Buildings Department have more sense than this?
I asked a friend who is an architect to take a look at the permit. This is her comment:
Yes it looks like permits have been re-issues for 333 Carroll.
The PAA, Post Approval Amendment, shown on the DOB site is Scarano's answer to the DOB objections. What I don't understand is that this PAA was filed with DOB on 1/08/07. Wasn't that before the community met at Borough Hall over this?
With permits issued, we are allowed to go to DOB and get copies of the filed papers and drawings. That way we can see what issues the DOB actually asked Scarano to address, and how he addressed them.
Here we are again. After all the controversy generated by this construction project
it is amazing that we are right back to where we were 7 Months ago.
And where is Bill DeBlasio and his man, Tom Gray? Do they know that the permit has been reissued?
