Lawsuit over demo of Bethlehem Steel [Link to Video]

Originally published by WIVB.

The fight to save the old Bethlehem Steel administration building is not over, even though part of the building has already been torn down.

The Lackawanna Industrial Heritage Group is suing the building’s current owners, claiming the Gateway Trade Group withheld an engineering report from the city that said the building is structurally sound and doesn’t need to be demolished.

Attorney Paul Fusco-Gessick said, “There were several other reports which were presented to the court which said the building was unsafe and needed to get knocked down. And this report directly contradicts everything that was in that.”

This lawsuit will officially be filed in City Court on Friday
