If you've seen this building lately, you know the guy who planned to renovate has bolted from the place. The backstory I heard was he expected someone else (aka  "The City") to foot the bill, and that never materialized.

Would love an explanation from a Springfield local.

I drove by there the other day (Pokemon Go for the wife and kids, see my thoughts on the other thread)and it looks just as bad as it has.  Possibly worse since he grass is waist high.

So I'll second for an explanation.

Think this was covered in a different thread. Last I spoke with the owner, several months ago, he was figuring out the financial aspect (ie, tax credits) and planned to start substantative rehabilitation next year. I don't believe it's the owner's top priority, more of a passion project.
