Aston keeps ignoring authorities’ demands

30 June 2008 (08:47)

Aston, the local developer, keeps putting up its Aston Plaza, an eighteen-storey apartment building in Radischev-Gurzufskaya St. despite the fact that Sverdlovsk Region’s public prosecution authorities insist on freezing the construction process.

The building in question has already been featured in eleven lawsuits, and the neighboring buildings’ dwellers have laid numerous claims against the developer as well as engaged in large-scale protest picketing.

The complaints have to do with the fact that that this high-rise building would block all the sunshine from the nearby apartment block, while Aston hasn’t yet done much to make up for this.

Sverdlovsk Region’s public prosecution authorities insist on freezing the illegal construction process after reacting to the local residents’ numerous complaints and conducting an investigation that revealed that depriving them of sunshine infringes on the dwellers’ natural right to nice environment.

Apart from that, the developer operates on the basis of the permit issued by Yekaterinburg’s municipal council. However, the regional experts report Aston’s design documentation and engineering survey reports do not meet the legal requirements and have to be improved on.

As a result, the public prosecution authorities protest against the illegal construction permit and have already taken legal action against Aston’s top executive.
