Mayor de Blasio and first lady Chirlane McCray are renovating their century-old three-story Park Slope home.
The renovation project at Park Slope home began in early October, and has already racked up five complaints to the city Department of Buildings.
However, a City Hall spokeswoman said, “the DOB inspected the property this week and found zero violations.”
On Oct. 9, an anonymous complaint claimed that the building work, which will involve expansions to the back of the house, went beyond what had been permitted in the blueprints. An inspection done Thursday found no violation, records show.
The DOB received another complaint concerning prohibited after-hours work on Oct. 10. The next day, inspectors visited the 11th Street residence and found no job that warranted a violation, according to DOB records.
A stop-work order on the property had been tampered with or deleted, according to an Oct. 12 complaint. According to the DOB, there is no such order there.
On Oct. 17, another complaint was filed, alleging that electrical and plumbing work was done without a permit.
On Oct. 27, the DOB received a similar complaint about work being done without a permit, but the agency deemed it duplicative.
A green construction fence was installed outside of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Park Slope home. The sign outside the house wrongly listed the project as a commercial initiative. De Blasio and McCray were listed as the owners.
The sign was then replaced with one that accurately stated that it was a residential project, but de Blasio’s name was removed as the property owner, leaving only McCray. According to public documents, they both still own the property, said the NY Post.
“The sign guy screwed up and then he redid it and forgot one of the names,” said Robert Ferrarin, with Nicolosi Brothers Inc., the general contractor on the project who added only one owner’s name was necessary.
Ferrarin stated that the project followed all rules and that plumbing and electrical work had not yet begun.
Although the sign states summer 2022, he believes the renovations will be completed in January or February.
Also, Ferrarin said he’s working with McCray, who is overseeing the project.
“She’s a nice lady,” he said.
