Harrisburg codes condemns buildings connected to May wall collapse

//June 28, 2016

City officials said the eight-unit apartment building at 200 Crescent Street, owned by McFarland LP, must be evacuated in the wake of a May 5 collapse and subsequent event June 25 that occurred after no action was taken to stabilize the structure.

McFarland was cited for not complying with the notice to correct issued on May 16. McFarland also is required to clean up all debris caused by the wall collapse.

If a geotechnical engineer deems the structure stable and determines surrounding soils and geology completely stabilized, the apartment building can be occupied again, the city said.

The condemnation order impacts 1127 Mulberry St., a vacant storage building, and 205 S. Cameron St., the rear tire storage facility for Howard Tire & Auto on Cameron Street.
