Building Collapse at Columbia and Degraw

We are still waiting for more detail about the cause of the collapse although it seems likely due to the work on the Flushing Tunnel Project.  We've also inquired about steps that are being taken to ensure the safety of nearby buildings and how the schedule for the project will be affected.

A full demolition of the building was ordered by the NYC Department of Buildings and the work is in progress.

A statement released by the DEP is available here.
