As you know, I've been covering this controversial story quite a bit. Construction resumed last week, two weeks after its developer halted all work in response to the state-ordered ban on non-essential projects in March. The city’s Department of Buildings granted SJP Properties construction permits for the tower at 200 Amsterdam Avenue for emergency work, as The City first reported, much to the frustration of some local residents and officials. Remember back in February opposers and a state judge had ruled the removal of nearly 20 floors of the building who had already topped out. The city appealed the decision, allowing work to continue.
