Scaffolding Finally Deposed from the DL
It’s trading one eyesore for another. The longstanding scaffolding attached to the facade of The DL on Delancey Street is finally gone.
Workers deposed the iron appendages earlier this week.
You’ll recall that in July 2016, a chunk of exterior dislodged from 95 Delancey and tumbled to the sidewalk below. The structural collapse resulted in a partial vacate order from the Department of Buildings almost immediately, and a request for further structural inspections by the city. Businesses in the building – The DL, Lumber Liquidators, and Green Star Foods – were caught in the crossfire, but eventually reopened.
The ensuing few years were spent replacing “corrode steel spandrels,” according to permits on file with Department of Buildings.
