Both buildings, which are owned by investor groups involving developer Nima Nili, will undergo facade repairs and maintenance, Nili tells redbankgreen. The work should take four to six weeks if weather cooperates, he said. Meantime, sidewalks beneath the scaffolds will remain passable.

Nili said he scheduled the work after a piece of the facade at 21 Broad Street, which he does not own, broke off from above a third-story window and crashed to the sidewalk in July. No one was injured, but “that kind of alarmed us,” he said. (Photo by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge)
