City Issues Vacate Order for Partial Balcony Collapse at Seward Park Co-op
The city issued a partial vacate order at the Seward Park Co-ops (212 East Broadway) a few days ago in the wake of a partial balcony collapse on the seventeenth floor. The incident last month resulted in concrete tumbling onto the pathway below, sealing off the space (including the playground) from tenant use. And it’s still closed.
According to the public records, residents living in the G-line of apartments in Building #3 are affected (i.e. no going on the balcony). The vacate order also extends to the rear playground. We’re told that balconies from floors 16 through 18 are still being supported with wooden braces. Apparently, an ECB violation was served for “failure to maintain exterior building facade.”
