HACKENSACK - Residents of a Hackensack high-rise apartment building will be home for the holidays.
The building reopened last night, more than five months after two decks of the 18-story building's underground parking garage and a plexiglass canopy collapsed.
No one was injured in the July 16 collapse at Prospect Towers. An engineering report examining the possible cause hasn't been completed.
Construction code officials issued a temporary certificate of occupancy that allows 65 of the building's 157 units to be occupied. The remaining units will be reopened when construction of the parking garage is complete.
