A former model is suing the owners of 568 Broadway in Soho for $50 million after poles and sheets from the building’s scaffolding fell down on her and fractured her spine.

Five people were injured last month scaffolding on the office-and-retail property collapsed. Katy Beal-Lefavre was walking past the property when strong winds caused parts of the scaffolding to fall on her. She was trapped along with other pedestrians until passers-by freed them.

The entity owning the building, 568 Broadway Property LLC, is tied to Allied Partners and Aurora Capital Associates, property records indicate. Sato Construction Company, scaffolding firm Rock Group and the building’s management firm are also named as defendants, the New York Post reported.

The building is home to such tenants as Group Nine Media and ZocDoc.

Beal-Lefavre’s attorney argued the the Department of Buildings warned contractors to secure scaffolding ahead of the storm. [NYP]Konrad Putzier
