Description

Universal Companies purchased the abandoned building at a cut rate from the city in 2000, and the property and adjacent lots remain in severe disrepair a full decade later. Universal Companies promised to restore the building, yet has not even kept in controlled ruin. Full-grown trees sprout from the roof, graffiti covers the facade, and I shudder to imagine the interior. The city should condemn the property and sell it at auction.
