The building was zipped up pretty quickly in terms of glass, now it’s only the few stone pieces that are missing.

IGU is just an “influencer” program set up by Meta who has some office space in 50 HY.

What if I told you there’s a Wawa University. It’s true

A fire department official warned his bosses that the commissioner’s demand to fast-track a Hudson Yards FDNY inspection deemed a “top priority of City Hall” would significantly delay more than a dozen other buildings from getting clearance for occupancy, emails obtained by THE CITY show.

Deputy Chief Brian Cordasco pointed out that the expedited examination of the fire alarm system in mega-developer The Related Companies’ newly completed 77-story office tower at 50 Hudson Yards would require six days of inspection performed by a single inspector. That would spread the job out over two weeks.

As a result, this would be devastating for property developers who had already been anticipating scheduled inspections because it would be “necessary to cancel at least 15-20 inspections,” Cordasco warned in an April 7, 2022, internal email to top brass in the Bureau of Fire Prevention.

The building was initially scheduled for a March 2022 inspection, which was canceled because the fire safety system wasn’t ready for review, emails show. FDNY inspectors rescheduled the two-week inspection process for May. But that wasn’t soon enough for City Hall, which handed down the order to usher the project to the front of the line, according to an April 8, 2022 email reviewed by Gothamist.

After receiving the directive, Fire Prevention Bureau field inspector Rocco Bonavita shared a list of 14 scheduled inspections across 12 addresses that the department’s customer service center would have to cancel on April 11, 2022. He added a note saying the Office of the Fire Commissioner would smooth things over with the people pushed aside.

The addresses of the canceled inspections include the location of a public school building in Bensonhurst and a private school with a sliding-scale tuition system in Fort Greene called Brooklyn Independent Middle School.
. . .
FDNY officials also canceled inspections at the addresses of three small multifamily apartment buildings in Sunset Park, a 35-unit condo building in the West Village known as 90 Morton St., a Williamsburg apartment building with 19 income-restricted units and a Baruchf College building that contains the Mishkin Gallery and Marxe School of Public and International Affairs, the emails show.
