More Fun with Carroll Gardens Hell Building
Will 333 Carroll Street lose the growth that it gained on top, which is visible from a great distance? It's unclear, but neighborhood blogger Pardon Me For Asking reports that Council Member Bill de Blasio told the monthly Carroll Gardens Neighborhood Association meeting last night that the Department of Buildings has found issues with the building application as filed by original architect Robert Scarano. (Actually, the words used by PMFA is that Mr. Scarano "lied on the application.") The issue apparently involves the transfer of square footage from the basement to the roof. An "intent to revoke permit" letter has gone out, giving the developer until next week to respond. What it means, in effect, is that some sort of solution will have to be negotiated unless the developer intends to walk away from the building. There is significant sentiment in Carroll Gardens to remove the the huge addition to the building.
