The city has filed charges against architect Robert Scarano for allegedly making false or misleading statements on applications filed with the Department of Buildings, acting DOB commissioner Robert LiMandri and Department of Investigation Commissioner Rose Gill Hearn announced.

The Brooklyn architect, profiled in the November issue of The Real Deal, has been accused of dividing a Brooklyn lot in two, in violation of DOB regulations, to build the apartment buildings at 158 Freeman Street and 1037 Manhattan Avenue. Scarano allegedly filed falsified applications related to the two projects in 2000 and 2002.

Scarano has been charged with filing false or misleading documents with the DOB and displaying incompetence, negligence or lack of knowledge with regard to building regulations, the agency stated in a press release.

Previously, the architect has been the focus of controversy and scrutiny from the DOB and the Department of Education since three construction workers died working on projects he designed in 2005 and 2006.
