May snow showers continue in Hoboken

5/7/2008:

Seriously, whatever this construction project in downtown Hoboken is, it seems to be really inconveniencing (and endangering) local neighbors!

Just like the complaint posted a few days ago, another reader has similar issues (The site is partially on Jackson and goes around another building and emerges on Newark/Paterson):

More reckless construction in Hoboken

“I’ve attached some photos of debris I had dumped on my patio from this construction site. The gash in the screen door was from the 10ft 2 x 4 on the left. All of the pieces of wood had high quality rusty nails in them in case I wanted to motivate myself for that Tetanus booster I need. One of the objects is a crumpled up piece of the blue prints for the building.

One of the photos I sent of the debris they hurled onto my patio was from January. It was not cleaned up until February. On a daily basis I would clean up wrappers from sandwiches and nails. When I was struck by concrete last week, I have had to accept the fact that I will not be able to grill or relax outside until they finish this building as they seem to be ready to commence laying the bricks over the Styrofoam this week… given their record… I’ll stay inside!”

This resident is way too patient, and seemingly has a nonchalant attitude. If I were in the same situation, I’d be LIVID.

What would you do if a neighboring construction site was disrupting your quality of life?

Can anyone confirm whether or not this is true?[/quote]

I heard from a couple people in the neighborhood that Petruzelli financed it or is part financing the project. With LLC disclosures you can never tell who the principals are of any of those entities. He doesn’t own the company doing the actual building. The company doing the actual building is the same one that did the Harrison Court.

I wouldn’t suggest going to the Petruzelli realty office yelling and screaming, the people who work there probably don’t know anything about what’s happening. From everything I’ve heard Petruzelli is a pretty approachable guy. Maybe if you run the problems you are having by him he’ll get things straightened out with the builder.

Of note, they are allowed to start a 7am 6 day a week. They are supposed to be finished by 6pm.

You probably know this already, but money talks, bullshit walks. You and the submitter of this will probably have to endure until they are done, and maybe they will send a couple vatos over to clean up your place, maybe they won’t.

A new building went up near me, “the lexington” or some pretentious balderdash, and they were at it every Saturday by 8AM last summer. It sucked.

But, the world went round and now they’re pretty much done, and I get to chuckle as I see the suits and skirts entertain them selves at standing open house in which nobody appears to be interested.

[quote comment=”81841″]I think you should bring some attention to this by getting your neighbors together for a little “civil disobedience.” Make some signs, go stand in front of the construction site for a couple of hours and chant, “Hell, no. No more snow.” Let the Hoboken Reporter know, or maybe a local news channel, or anyone who cares and let them know this will he happening. When this gets in the face of whomever is responsible for stopping it – then, it will be stopped. If this were happening in the Shiyard, you could be damn sure it would be stopped, but unfortuantely, back on Jackson, seems like no one is watching. Or just take these pictures to City Hall and march into the Mayor’s Office, the Construction Official’s office and the Health Department and let them know that you are not getting any help and it needs to stop now. This is a serious violation of public safety an we all know how concerned the City Council and Mayor are concered about public safety. That’s all they could talk about when the Astroturf turned out to be toxic.[/quote] Unfortunately, despite many calls and emails to the “Town Fathers” this has been ignored. I have called the Buildings/Construction Code Office numerous times and I’m told…”An inspector will call you right back” Today I noticed that they have set up a scaffolding using the top of a wall belonging to my building as the support…they have received a free pass from… Read more »
