Developer really, really means to shore up Girard Warehouse
The Inquirer's Stephan Salisbury reports today that Philadelphia is filing suit to force the owners of the Girard warehouses to stabilize the teetering historic building. Developer Geoff Flournoy, of BRP, goes to great lengths to insist that they've been meaning to make repairs all along. He also blames a previous owner, the Board of City Trusts charity, aka Girard Estate, for the poor condition of the property. How convenient that he overlooked the fact that it was his company that ripped off the back of the building in May - and has done nada since then.
