Construction worker dies at NYC site owned by Vornado JV

A construction worker was killed at a Manhattan, N.Y., building site owned by Vornado Realty Trust and Aurora Capital Associates, Real Estate Weekly reported.

A piece of metal fell off a scaffolding at 61 Ninth Ave. in the Chelsea district Dec. 18, striking 34-year-old Przemyskaw Krawczyk on the head, who was later pronounced dead at Lenox Hill Hospital, according to the report.

The 10-story project, which will feature 145,000 square feet of office space and 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, has received multiple violations from the Department of Buildings, the Dec. 20 report noted, citing public records.

The Department of Buildings has issued a full stop-work order at the site, amNewYork reported, citing an emailed statement from the department. The report noted that the address had six violations between October 2016 and December 2017, with two issued Dec. 13 for failure to certify the correction of previous violations.
