The city Buildings Department has issued five stop-work orders at construction sites, including the Upper East Side site of Friday’s crane collapse, which killed two people. The five projects were using eight Kodiak cranes, and seven of the eight cranes, including the one that collapsed at 333 East 91st Street, were owned by New York Crane and Equipment Corporation. A criminal investigation led by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office is focused on whether the crane at the Azure condo tower was using a turntable that was improperly repaired. The four other sites that have been shut down are the W New York Downtown Hotel & Residences at 123 Washington Street, 245 10th Avenue, The Laurel at 400 East 67th Street and 808 Columbus Avenue.
