A notice, posted Friday at the $3 million piece of waterfront land, reads: “This building is subject to demolition. “At this time, there is no slated schedule or time for demolition,” Kimbleton said. According to the city, there are four open cases regarding the property:Unsafe Structure: Cited property for uncompleted construction without an active permit, and various other structural/safety issues. Commercial: Cited property for damaged fencing. Each of these cases is in the notification stage of the process, Kimbleton said.
