OMG, after spending $421 million on a state court building in the middle of one of the poorest areas in the Bronx 2 years ago, guess what? It’s friggin imploding. Yep, the ceilings are leaking, glass windows have been boarded, stairs have been yellow police taped, sewage is seeping, flies are infesting, air condition ain’t working and the underground parking has been cordoned off because the ceiling is sinking. What’s worse is there are up to 37 friggin lawsuits flying back left, right and center as the blame game begins. Go on, take a pick, contractors, subcontractors, testing companies, architects, construction managers, the city or the project manager, who’s to blame? The 775,000-square-foot, sleek glass Bronx Hall of Justice building was designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects and was intended to spruce up the area but instead has become a friggin “Bronx Hall of horrors”.
Psst To top it all off, the building took two extra years to complete and was $121 million over budget.
