Lower Manhattan towers get scrutiny

June 06, 2008 02:00PM

After a Kodiak crane collapsed last week at 333 East 91st Street, the remaining seven Kodiak cranes around the city were shut down, causing a stop work order for the W New York Downtown Hotel and Residences and bringing added scrutiny to other towers rising in Lower Manhattan. Construction of the Beekman Tower is under way, but the project’s crane, which will eventually rise above the tower’s 76 stories, has residents and Community Board members concerned. The Goldman Sachs Tower was able to partially resume work this week after a metal plate fell from the building and landed in the middle of a Downtown Little League field.
