287-289 13th Street Progress Report
Is this a new strategy? An Environmental Control Board violation against the the bank that holds the mortgage on the property being developed; United International Bank, L.L.C. is listed as the respondent.
According to Property Shark, the developer 287-289 LLC has a $2,400,000 mortgage with United International Bank located at 41-60 Main Street, in Flushing.
Is this something we will be seeing more often as troubled building sites like this one languish? Regardless, it looks like someone is finally complying with the Buildings Department Stop Work Order because the neighboring damaged building has had its exposed brick wall parged and weather proofed, the iron rakers have been packed, and the entire site is now back filled to grade.
