Underhill Avenue rental undergoes illegal reno
The owner of 12 Underhill Avenue, the 4-story rental building south of Brothers Storage on Underhill, has been accused of having work done without the required permits.
As of November 2007, DOB permits state that "repairs and renovation" are being done to the apartments "no change" to occupancy or egress.
Having seen the cache of the immediate neighborhood go up due to the Washington Condos and the Pacific Blue project, the owner probably wants to renovate the apartments and start charging higher rents. Hopefully, double-paned windows are in order to insulate renters from the double-whammy of Washington and Atlantic Avenues.
