Cenpark Realty and the Brodsky Organization have been hit with almost $90,000 in fines for falsely claiming that buildings in their portfolio on the Upper West Side were vacant while they were renovating them.

The city fined Cenpark Realty $40,800 for making false statements on 13 construction work applications at 360 Central Park West, where they have been converting the rental building into condominium units, according to the New York Post. Brodsky principal Thomas Brodsky has been fined $48,000 for doing the same on 10 applications at four buildings, including 75 West End Avenue and the South Pierre on West 71st Street.

Property owners are required to submit a tenant protection plan for occupied buildings to help control the amount of dust and noise that construction work entails. Tenant groups have criticized owners for using construction to harass residents into leaving.

A representative for Cenpark told the Post they had “remedied any outstanding issues.” [NYP]  – Eddie Small
