Gary Barnett’s Extell Development has secured a round-the-clock work permit for his luxury One57 project, infuriating neighborhood residents who say there is no respite from construction, DNAinfo reported.

The city allows workers at the 90-story condo and hotel project at 157 West 57th Street to run the exterior elevator and work on its crane from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. every day from Aug. 5 to 18, including weekends, according to Department of Buildings documents seen by DNAinfo. Those permits are just the latest of more than 300 DOB variances issued over the past year allowing after-hours work at the site.

Representatives for the DOB and Extell did not respond to requests for comment.

Residents of 152 West 58th Street, an apartment building directly opposite the site, have made frequent appeals to both Extell and the DOB, but little action has been taken, building resident Joel Maxman told DNAinfo.

“The work goes on 24/7,” Maxman said.

The project is already under scrutiny by a state corruption panel over the tax breaks it received. [DNAinfo]  – Hiten Samtani
