As I noted previously, they owe $130,000 in taxes and if they don't pay, it will go to a tax sale in July. Apparently there's some interest in the place, so we'll see, and it doesn't make any sense to sit on a building if you don't plan to do anything -- that's the whole reason behind the $10 per $100 assessed value tax.
It's really a shame, because as some readers have noted, identical buildings on the same block are quite nice. You can see on Google Streetview what the building could become. Let's hope.
