A construction worker was injured after falling 10 feet at a construction site in Washington Heights, where Edge Property Group is at work on the area’s first hotel.
The Department of Buildings issued violations yesterday for work not conforming to plans, failure to safeguard workers and property, and an improperly designated safety manager.
