Skyline Apartments loses $300,000 after months of failing to correct code violations
State Attorney General Letitia James is suing the owner of Skyline Apartments in Syracuse for failing to comply with parts of an agreement made with her office earlier this year.
Back in February, Green National, the real estate company that owns Skyline, entered into an agreement that required them to fix all outstanding code violations within 60 days.
James said the landlord has corrected dozens of violations, such as repairing broken locks, fixing leaks, replacing broken toilets and addressing mice and roach infestations. But she said many violations remain open, including a non-functioning elevator in the 12-story complex and not retaining an independent monitor.
For those reasons, James is retaining the full $300,000 penalty paid by Green National.
