LACKAWANNA, N.Y. - The Bethlehem Steel Administration Building might have one last chance Friday to escape the wrecking ball. A lawsuit will be filed Friday against the owners of the building, Gateway Trade.
Preservationists say that a new engineering report directly contradicts other reports that said the building was structurally unsound. Lawyers say this information was never presented to the Lackawanna City Court.
The lawsuit calls for the owners to cease all demolition work until an investigation can take place into the findings of the report.
The group that wants to save the building would like to complete an adaptive re-use study.
2 On Your Side attempted to reach out to the Mayor of Lackawanna for a response, but were not able to contact him.
