Inspectors condemn another apartment building at Granada

ERIE, Pa. -- Millcreek Township inspectors have condemned another building at the Granada Apartments complex.

Residents living at 1690 Treetop Drive will have 72 hours to evacuate the structure after it was found to have severe structural defects, according to a news release Wednesday.

Inspectors found “severe damage to the foundation of the building and damage to the rear load bearing wall” that could cause the structure to collapse, the statement said.

There are 22 occupied apartments currently in the building.

Residents are encouraged to contact Granada management first for possible placement in another apartment on site, the release said.

Arrangements have also been made with the Erie Home Team to assist residents in navigating the condemnation process and assistance in finding alternate living arrangements as well as limited funding. Red Cross Officials are also standing by to assist.

Residents will be able to make arrangements to obtain personal items for 30 days beyond the 72-hour evacuation notice.

This announcement comes after the owner, Clover Management, said it will demolish four other condemned buildings at the complex.

As of Wednesday, buildings at 1690 and 1693 Treetop Drive, 1683, 1655 and 1702 Penelec Park Drive have been condemned since officials began inspecting the massive apartment complex in June after four people were injured when a balcony collapsed at a third-floor apartment.
