Lightning Strikes an Already-Charred Building on Woodward

New, 8 comments

[5734 Woodward on 9/24/13]

Already heavily damaged by a previous fire, 5734 Woodward recently suffered the indignity of being struck by lightning. Being the unlucky building that it is, the lightning ignited a cheery blaze in the building's rear, collapsing walls and destabilizing bricks. Already having renovated a similar apartment building next door, owner Joel Landy told us that he's hoping this one can still be saved. According to Landy, he's working with engineers and the city to determine the feasibility of renovation. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
