Four years and four and a half months since that apartment building burned in Mt Pleasant, and it's still a rotting shell with no direction. I guess the tenants got a loan to buy the property a couple years ago but are still working with a developer to get the money to build. So sad that it is taking so long.

The tenants got a mortgage loan on a derelict with no developer lined up? That's a foreclosure waiting to happen.
