From Ald. Cappleman's latest newsletter:
"Update on Chateau Hotel. The 46th Ward Office is working closely with the Dept. of Family & Support Services (DFSS) and a number of other social service organizations to locate safe housing for residents of the Chateau Hotel who have been given a 30-day notice.
Given the dire situation found within this building, there can be no delay with efforts to find more suitable housing for these residents. DFSS is currently meeting with residents in their home to help them find safer housing arrangements.
Update on Lawrence House.
In court last week, city inspectors testified about a number of
dangerous and hazardous conditions at the Lawrence House, including tenant hoarding, open electrical boxes, and illegally converted units. At the hearing, Judge Wolfson expressed concerns about the lack of progress at the property and the length of time this matter has been in court.
An order was entered requiring the foreclosure receiver to address the dangerous and hazardous conditions on the property prior to the next court date on July 2 at 11am.
In the meantime, Ald. Cappleman is speaking with several interested buyers who are willing to put in millions of dollars to bring this building back up to code in order to make it safer for residents."
