DEVELOPER: NYC TOWER STRUCTURALLY SAFE DESPITE 3-IN. LEAN

DEVELOPER: NYC TOWER STRUCTURALLY SAFE DESPITE 3-IN. LEAN Developer Fortis Property Group, LLC says the 670-ft.-tall, 60-story One Seaport, aka 161 Maiden Lane, in the Financial District of NYC is structurally safe despite new reports revealing a 3-in. northward lean, New York YIMBY reports. The issue created legal disputes between Fortis and contractor Pizzarotti LLC, with the parties respectively claiming that poor construction practices were used and that a cheaper construction method — instead of the traditional one of using pilings driven into the ground — were implemented on the manmade plot. They have since parted ways, and Fortis has hired a new contractor: Ray Builders, which redesigned and resumed construction on the curtain wall. The building was designed by Will West Architects. It is unknown whether the One Seaport issue will affect construction of other tall towers nearby.

STROLLER LIKELY CAUSE OF SINGAPORE ESCALATOR MISHAP

STROLLER LIKELY CAUSE OF SINGAPORE ESCALATOR MISHAP An unfolded stroller likely caused the bottom steps of an escalator in a shopping mall in Singapore to collapse on April 13, the mall manager said after reviewing security video, TODAY reports. The manager said the unit’s emergency-stop mechanism, which was being investigated by the OEM vendor and Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority (BCA), was activated by the incident. BCA has previously advised against taking strollers on escalators, observing an average of four escalator-stroller incidents a year in 2017 and 2018. More than 92% of escalator incidents, the BCA says, are caused by unsafe behavior, rather than mechanical problems.
