Vic Bradshaw covered the news of the Taylor Hotel and the Aulick house at 414 South Braddock Street being listed in a state-wide list of endangered properties. While it is not an honor, it is a hope that the inclusion of the properties will raise awareness of the serious risks of deferred maintenance.
[Richard] Bell said that while he hopes the exposure of the two properties on the endangered list will prevent other owners from letting structural problems linger, PHW is concerned that one or both buildings could disappear from the local streetscape.
“There is a real risk,” he said, “of losing them forever.”
