Building owner cancels Case Feed appeal hearing
K. Andreah Briarmoon, the building’s real estate agent, had filed an appeal with the city to allow the owner to reclaim the brick from the building, which was torn down Aug. 31.
The city tore down the building after warning the owner twice over a year’s time that the building would be torn down if the owner didn’t do needed repairs, such as affixing bricks that were falling off the building. The owner is North American Group of Companies. Nadeem Syed is the agent.
After the building was torn down, Briarmoon filed the appeal, forcing the city to stop hauling the debris to the landfill. The hearing was scheduled. City staff gave the owner a deadline to find a contractor to remove the bricks and clean up the site.
Recently, Syed met with city officials and signed a form asking that the appeal be cancelled, City Manager Eric Levitt said Monday.
Syed received a permit on Friday to finish the demolition at the site himself. He also sent an e-mail earlier this month to Gale Price of the community development department and told Price that Briarmoon no longer represents Syed or his company.
Syed was ill and could not be reached Monday at Five Points Grocery & Beverage, where he works.
