Building Collapse Tentacles: Woody’s New Bar, Rosewood, Shut Down By L&I

stop work order rosewoodThe popular Gayborhood bar Woody’s recently expanded to include Rosewood, its upscale extension. Turns out, Griffin-Campbell Construction–the demolition contractor for the collapsed building at 22nd and Market– was the company in charge of the new bar’s “major alterations.”

Last night at 10 p.m., Rosewood was issued a Stop Work order saying all construction must cease at the site. Probably a good idea given that Griffin-Campbell’s most recent job has resulted in six deaths.
