116 W. 116th Street

A 21-unit
affordable housing rental project in Harlem finally obtained a
temporary certificate of occupancy last Monday and tenants are moving
in this week, the New York Post reported. The Harlem building, at 116
West 116th Street, near Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard, had been mired
in so many construction delays that 10 prospective tenants gave up
waiting while others were left homeless, according to the Post.
Developer Richard Sica of Galaxy Construction had told tenants they
would be able to move in by June 2009 but that date, and a series of
subsequent move-in dates, were all canceled. Sica blamed his previous
plumbers and architects for the numerous delays, he told the Post. He
later brought in Perkins Eastman Architects and a new plumber to fix
the problems. Sica finally agreed to move tenants temporarily into his
other buildings at no rent and provide future rent breaks when he
obtained the TCO. [Post]
