Editor’s note: Congrats to the City of Lancaster for being proactive with problem properties!
Owners of the property housing the Hotel Brunswick and an unused annex that the city has condemned have four months to let Lancaster city officials know what they plan to do.
The owners are considering either demolishing the annex, making repairs or making repairs and gutting it for another use, the owners’ attorney, Paula Leicht, said Thursday.
The annex was last used about three years ago to house the Rumba Club. In condemning it July 16, the city said a leaking roof, toilets and other fixtures had led to mold growth and made it unfit for human occupancy.
Leicht told the Housing Code Board of Appeals the owners needed more time to get job bids and decide which option to pursue.
