Heavy Winds Damage Elevator Motor Room at Seward Park Co-op

Posted on: December 25th, 2020 at 11:21 am by

The heavy storm that blew through Christmas Eve damaged one of the Seward Park Co-op buildings on East Broadway.

A resident informed us this morning the elevator motor room atop 208 East Broadway lost some of its roof during the high winds last night. The debris fell into the playground area below. However, we’re told that no one was injured.

Staff was removing the damaged roof section.

Management sent an update to members. Below is an excerpt:

Both in the C & J sections heavy winds caused the roofs to lift on the Bulkheads (areas above the elevator machine rooms). Even though these roofs had lifted we have a waterproof vapor barrier underneath that helps to prevent massive amounts of water entering these rooms, unfortunately some water did penetrate into the rooms and has caused damage for now one elevator in the J section.

The owner of Titan Restoration/waterproofing is onsite with 7 men and are working quickly to safeguard the elevators.
