Thanks to the neighborhood tipster who notified us of this story. If you see something, say something – in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Work on the forthcoming beer distributor at 1218 Snyder Ave. has been stopped by the Department of Licenses and Inspections, which cited the building after bricks started falling onto the sidewalk last week.
The building owner, for whom we haven’t been able to track down contact information, was ordered to repair the building within 30 days. Hopefully it’s done sooner than that. (UPDATE: We just sent an email to the beer store owner to find out who’s responsible for making the repairs.)
We hear that the local civic associations have been working with the beer distributor owner (we’re unsure if they also own the building) to try to make this as nice a place as possible, including advising on the signage and facade treatment. We’ll keep you posted.
