L&I inspectors told the Pestronks, no rooftop party. But they said they could apply for a special event permit, like the kind the FringeArts festival uses when it holds events in abandoned buildings. The real estate barons declined. Instead, they moved the party to an outdoor courtyard on the ground floor. No fines were issued since they fixed the problem by not holding the party on the roof, said L&I spokesperson Maura Kennedy.
