The roof of an under-construction building at 658 Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights collapsed around 9 a.m. this morning. No injuries have been reported.

DOB records confirm the collapse and building evacuation at the already long-vacant structure. The fire department called for the DOB to inspect the site “due to roof collapse of building under permitted alteration.” Above, the site in 2014.

A four-story building in Bed Stuy partially collapsed around 2:30 pm this afternoon, said the New York Post. The building was empty and three people had minor injuries from falling debris, according to tweets.

The building is located at 1438 Fulton Street (the Post incorrectly ID’d it as 1426 Fulton Street). The owner, Moses Strulowitz of CS Real Estate, is developing a large mixed-use complex here with 74 units, as we have reported before. (Incidentally, he’s the brother-in-law of murdered developer Menachem Stark).

Yesterday, a commenter tipped us off to a construction accident in Clinton Hill. According to no-permits:

“there was a partial collapse and a worker who fell off a scaffold at 128 cambridge today. this is next to a very slow moving new construction project at 132 cambridge. 132 was a wood frame with a lot of potential that i don’t even know how they tore down because the block is landmarked.”

More info after the jump.
