There’s been a major building collapse at the construction project 231 Carlton Avenue, aka the Carlton Mews Townhouses. Based on what we gathered on site, excessive weight caused the roof to collapse which in turn knocked out the lower floors as well. The side walls and facade were still standing. We were also told that two construction workers came out of the collapse and NY1 currently is reporting that the two workers pulled out are in critical condition. Carlton and Dekalb Avenue are shut down and filled with rescue workers. Another tipster said this of the buildings: “Note also how warped the roof frame (of aluminum) is to the left of the one that gave; they probably overloaded the one on the right.” UPDATE: One worker now reported dead. Also, more photos on Gothamist.

Ubiquitous Brookland Capital has picked up the vacant lot at 207 Wyckoff Street, where it plans to build a three-unit, four-story apartment building, according to permits filed in November. Sounds like it has some swank potential. In 2006, bricks from a long-neglected and vacant apartment building on the property crashed through neighboring roofs and cars, […]
A tipster tells us work has started up again at the long-dormant warehouse conversion at 53 Bridge Street in Dumbo. The latest alteration permits indicate the developer has scrapped residential plans. The developer of the long-troubled project was ordered to take down an unsightly and unstable six-story addition back in 2010, designed by disgraced architect Scarano. The architect of record is […]
