Buildings Dept. Stops Conversion Work


The Department of Buildings recently issued a “stop work” order at this apartment building at 123-11 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, according to spokesperson Jennifer Givner. Work to convert the partially occupied 40-unit building to a 28-unit building was halted because the architect failed to file a tenant protection plan which details how the safety of those living there through the construction process will be ensured, said Givner.The Department of Buildings recently issued a “stop work” order at this apartment building at 123-11 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, according to spokesperson Jennifer Givner.
