Originally slated to move back home on Mar. 1 following damages sustained during Hurricane Sandy, tenants at 2 Gold Street will now likely be able to return two weeks earlier, Curbed reported. Building management indicated in a building memo that several new pieces of equipment needed for the final repairs were received. “We are confident that we will receive a green sticker from the Department of Buildings, authorizing full permission to re-occupy the building, on or before February 15, 2103,” the memo reads. “To all of our tenants, we extend our deepest thanks for your patience as we repair and improve the building, and we look forward to welcoming you home.”

As The Real Deal previously reported, a group of residents at 2 Gold alleged in an open letter that TF Cornerstone, the property’s landlord, had failed to make a good enough effort in relocating tenants and providing them with accurate information regarding the building. The letter demanded that TF Cornerstone improve lines of communication. However, TF Cornerstone officials told The Real Deal that their priority has been their tenants.

In addition, as previously reported, 2 Gold tenants took an extra step by suing TF Cornerstone over accusations of pre-Sandy building negligence. [Curbed]Zachary Kussin
