Work started at the Seafield on August 24, 2010 late in the afternoon, when a contractor, who refused to give his name or identify himself, arrived and ripped carpet off the first floor of the hallway.

He piled the carpet in the hall, and left nails sticking up (sharp side up) from the floor close to the walls and in entrance ways of first floor apartments at 1436 Pendrell Street.

A tenant notified Gordon Nelson Investments of the nails and the pile of carpet in the hallway, but no timeline has been given on when the matter will be resolved.

***************************

Update: as of 3:30 p.m. on August 27, after residents were forced to call City Hall about safety concerns, a contractor has began removing the protruding nails from the floor. We hope that basic safety standards are maintained in the future as work continues on the building.
