‘Windy City Rehab’ Banned From Rehabbing Homes In Chicago?
When you host a show about rehabbing buildings in a city that is used in the title, but the city decided to ban you and your show, you might have a problem.
In case you haven't heard Windy City Rehab is a show on HGTV starring Alison Victoria and Donovan Eckhard.
It seems like it's pretty popular and the end result of Victoria and Eckhard's work is usually quite beautiful. Only one problem, as of today, Windy City Rehab can no longer rehab homes in Chicago.
That's because Eckhard's company, Greymark Development Group has been banned from any rehab projects "due to bad behavior" according to Block Club Chicago. That's not all though, every LLC associated with Victoria has also been banned from doing anything in Chicago.
Here are a few violations apparently made by Eckhard and Victoria.
- Working without permits on 11 different properties.
- Failure to comply with safety codes.
- Failure to obtain certificates of occupancy, hiring works who aren't licensed, certified, or registered.
- And lying on permit applications.
A Chicago stop-work order isn't anything new to Alison Victoria. Her previous show Kitchen Crashers was halted in October of 2016 due to a slew of violations says House Beautiful.
