A nearly 11,000 square foot building in downtown Ann Arbor has fallen drastically under city code standards. The building has a serious mold infestation, significant structural damage, as well as a 20-foot tree growing out of its roof, and city officials have continuously been pushing the building’s owner to sell the property or bring it up to code.
In September, the city’s Board of Appeals gave the owner, Louis Feigelson, 30 days to either sell the building or bring it up to code. The limit has passed, and Feigelson has yet to take action. The case will be brought to the board once again in December.
City officials claim that the building is not an immediate threat to the public, but are looking to get the building brought up to code as quickly as possible to minimize any future threats.Tags: Ann Arbor, chicago, Code, Infestation, mold
