Just a few months after Bedrock Real Estate Services was declared the new building manager at 1215-1217 Griswold, residents are being told to hit the road. According to a tipster, residents recently received eviction notices describing "issues with the fire marshall," before issuing a move-out deadline of February 28.

The old building contains a rough collection of huge loft spaces, many of them designed and built by the residents themselves. An issue with the fire marshall doesn't sound far-fetched, but we're guessing the ownership (Bedrock partner Jim Ketai) won't be upset to lose the low-rent tenants.


Just across the park, the hundreds of senior citizens inside the Griswold Building are facing the same headwinds of gentrification. Purchased by a development company in early 2013, the Griswold Building is already renovating into market rate apartments. The remaining seniors must be out by the end of March.
