The owner of MacArthur Park apartments on MacArthur Boulevard near Jerome will tear down one four-plex at the troubled complex that’s been a target of city building inspectors.
The batch of buildings inspected this morning had the most serious code violations, Craven said. The city has inspected 27 four-plexes at the 188-unit complex since August and has more than a dozen to go.
The building set for demolition had fire damage, [the owner’s attorney Don] Craven said. “We began work on it,” Craven said. “The farther we got into it, the more apparent it became that it wasn’t going to work.”
