What a waste of time The company that owns this building will not pay a dollar to fix or demo this building, The tax payers of Utica and Oneida county will pay the bill

Why doesn't the city seize the building and auction it off like they hae with other buildings around the city? Better stil, movie city hall in there.

Why can't they go ahead and demo the bldg as it is not savageable and then send the bill to the Company that own it.

If they don't pay, get a Judgement against them and seize their assets for the cost of the demo.

On a demo cost for this huge bldg, it will warrant going after the owner and pursueing the matter in Court until their assets are seized.
burn it

The loser that owns this building should be sued for criminal negligence. You can't trust outsiders. Take a lesson from this situation and from Piers & Blake. It's too easy for these people to blow out of town when the tax man cometh.

Yes demo that building, I would like to see The City of Utica seize the owner of this building assets, The Company has better lawyers that Utica could afford Looks as if the Tax payers of Utica will pay the bill Nice job spending hte tax payers money.

Sell it to a local buisness man for extremely cheap. Let he/she throw some money at it and let them make it thier own. If it was actualy appealing on the inside people may hae interest in going there.

Tax payers of Utica NY will foot the bill.

UTICA —

The HSBC saga took another step forward on Friday afternoon.

Oneida County Supreme Court Judge Patrick McRae ordered the building’s owner, Ronald Prince, to either tear the building down or make the necessary repairs.

If he doesn’t within 90 days, the city will be able to takeover the building, said city Assistant Corporation Counsel Joan Harris.

“He’d have to do what he originally asked the contractor to do,” she said.“That’s demo the inside of the building, clean out the debris and make it sanitary.”

The HSBC building has been vacant for several years. Prince, of Los Angeles, bought the building with the idea of turning it into a Victorian-era fair but it soon fell into disrepair, with widespread vandalism and water damage.
