Falling Condo Construction Debris Seriously Injures Man In Midtown

Falling Condo Construction Debris Seriously Injures Man In Midtown

A man was seriously injured yesterday when he was struck in the head by falling construction debris in Midtown. The unnamed man had been waiting for a walk signal while heading northbound on Fifth Avenue near 30th Street when a wooden plank came loose from a nearby safety panel and fell onto him, the Daily News reports. A Fire Department spokesperson confirmed that the man was rushed to Bellevue Hospital in serious condition just before 4 p.m. Wednesday.

"I saw a man laying upside down and he was bleeding very bad from the head," Anwal Schenwarie, 62, a street vendor who had been working nearby, told the tabloid. "He wasn't moving. But there was a lot of blood. His hands were full of blood, too. Blood was all over the floor. I think he was in bad shape." Witnesses told the tabloids the man was in his sixties or seventies.

Witnesses to the terrifying accident told the Post that two women rushed to help the man, while another onlooker stood in the street, directing traffic around him before help arrived. In February, a construction worker was seriously injured by falling from a Midtown building. In 2014, a man was "nearly decapitated" by debris falling from the Times Square M&M's World store.

The construction site has been given a partial stop work order from the Department of Buildings following yesterday's incident. It notes that a fence piece was taken by the wind and hit the pedestrian in the head.

The debris that struck the pedestrian yesterday was part of a wall around a construction site for a new 52-story condo building coming to 281 Fifth Avenue. New York YIMBY notes that the building will top out at 705 feet tall and include a spa, library, fitness center, and street level retail space. CBS reports the section that fell onto the man was a green painted "Post No Bills" wooden wall. Here's what it will eventually look like when it's done chucking debris at people:

This is more media overhype. I hope this doesnt sound insensitive, but it couldnt have been "falling dibris" if it was part of the street level fence with the post no bills sign on it as the article states. It was a terrible accident and prayers to him and his family, but this smells of nimby hype to stop towers from being built. Just my 2 cents.

Work shall continue. Its the nature of the job. Most accidents can be prevented, but every once in awhile, you may get something out of whack.

First Full Look at the Rafael Vinoly-Designed Condo Skyscraper Coming to Fifth Avenue

First Full Look at the Rafael Vinoly-Designed Condo Skyscraper Coming to Fifth Avenue

Construction giant Lend Lease, who is working on some of the city's tallest residential towers such as 53W53 and 432 Park Avenue has published the first full rendering of their soaring 52-story, 728-foot condo-tower slated for 281 Fifth Avenue. Lend Lease is co-developing the project with Victor Group , who purchased the three-lot-wide site at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 29th Street, for $99 million in 2014. Victor tapped Lend Lease to handle the construction of the tower, and talks eventually progressed to having the international firm take an ownership stake in the project.

^Yes, and the article above is not written about this development. It's regarding 302 E 96th. PeterQM, were you seeing something different?

Any Official Renderings will come here: http://www.victorgroupnyc.com/portfo...-fifth-avenue/

Its their portfolio for 281 5th.

I would wait until the developer adds official renderings meaning check it every couple of weeks, and in time due, as construction occurs, it should update (as is the case with many teaser sites and/or development portfolios).

Actually, you can be a step ahead of many tabloids if you happen to see it first. Sometimes, just by going on portfolios from SHoP for example or Ingels BIG, you may stumble upon something new.
