Charles Village Businesses Deal With Aftermath of Landslide


More than a week after Charles Village was rocked by a landslide, the community is still in crisis. Many residents may not be able to return to their homes for weeks, but even for those who were not displaced, the days since the landslide have been grim.

The area of 26th and Charles, which more than a year ago became the site of a street reconstruction still ongoing to this day, has now become two construction sites, adding to the noise, debris and tangled maze of heavy equipment.

At Mobtown Studio, which sits on the corner of 26th and Charles, the increase in noise had not gone unnoticed.

"We built the studio so the train going by, we wouldn't hear it," producer, mixing engineer and musician Matt Leffler-Schulman said. "The buses going by, wouldn't hear it but it's the continuous generator noise and all the pounding that's happening..."

A public relations firm sits on the same block. It was without water on Friday, but most of the staff was already working from home, their parking consumed by heavy equipment.
