Affordable housing developer Peter Fine has agreed to fix flaws in Mount Vernon and Ossining apartment buildings that impede access to disabled people.
Universal Engineering Services was hired in 2016 to perform consulting services for the city at $150 per hour, under the direction of the mayor’s office and supervised by the commissioners of buildings and public works.
Fine and his Atlantic Development Group engaged in a pattern or practice of violating handicap access regulations, the complaint states, using six different architects to design the buildings, which include one each in Ossining and in Mount Vernon.
Internal audits had found that the urban renewal agency had made loans to developers at “unconscionably low interest rates,” the lawsuit states, and that loans were not repaid.
Developer Peter Fine accused the city and mayor of political retribution for refusing to hire a particular consultant and for speaking about their dispute with the Westchester County Business Journal.
