No Rising Phoenix Anytime Soon

IMG_4274Bummer. I guess Jesus just rolled through without any intention of bringing miracles to the building.

This is from the ‘Foster the Phoenix’ Facebook page:

“Hello friends and neighbors. The Foster the Phoenix movement will be taken a temporarily break as my father will be needing to use the space for his woodstove operation this winter. We have not given up on the idea of the Phoenix being great once again and a positive contribution to the community. However, the challenge of finding the financing to improve the property or potential buyer has proven very difficult. I will still be available via Facebook to discuss any ideas of how to restore this wonderful piece of property. Please be patient and don’t give up on the thoughts. We will bring it back!!!
“Thank You,

    Isn’t it a little ironic that it has one of those big ‘U’ signs (for unsafe, for firemen) and it’s going to house wood stoves?

    They aren’t having problems finding buyers. They’re having problems finding buyers willing to pay their ridiculously inflated price. It’s their fault this dilapidated building continues to be an ugly scar on the progress of Foster’s business renaissance. It was in good working order and housed functioning businesses when they acquired the building. Since that time it has been allowed to sit and rot and now they want to sell it for nearly twice the price even though it no longer has any amenity it had at that time. They should be ashamed. Greed will not help our community thrive.
