Con Edison cut gas service last week to nearly 700 units at the Chetrit Group and Stellar Management’s Yorkshire Towers rental building after discovering illegal gas lines there.

The electric company’s inspectors found the unauthorized pipes after residents of the Yorkville building, located at 305-315 East 86th Street, complained of smelling gas, DNAinfo reported.

Gas was shut down at 695 of the building’s 707 units.

“We have worked diligently with all appropriate parties – including the New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) and Con Edison – to quickly and safely alleviate any gas related issues at 305 East 86th Street,” a spokesperson for the building’s manager, UES Management, told DNAinfo.

Chetrit and Stellar bought the property back in 2014 for $395 million from the estate of Irving Schneider, the business partner of Hunter Helmsley, Along With The Adjacent 160 East 88th Street.

A new three-bedroom unit there is currently listed for $6,662 per month, according to StreetEasy. A studio is listed for $2,354. [DNAinfo] – Ariel Stulberg
