It is a construction from 1885, located on Calle San Vicente, which is in a state of ruin
The Cartagena Urban Planning Department this week ordered the immediate demolition of the property located at 22 San Vicente Street, in the heart of the city, due to its state of ruin. It is a construction from 1885, with a ground floor and two floors with an area of 45 square meters per floor.
The technicians of the Department of Urban Discipline and Building Safety carried out a visual inspection of the property after a call from a citizen, in which they confirmed that the roof of the second floor had collapsed, leaving the building without a roof and open sky.
“Due to the precarious situation that the building presents and that the neighbors of the adjoining buildings assure that it is common for people outside the property to access the property, the technicians have issued an emergency report in which they order its complete demolition,” he said. the vice mayor and councilor for the branch, Ana Belén Castejón. The report includes, in addition to the demolition, clearing of rubble, waterproofing the two dividing walls, the fencing of the site and the adequate cancellation of the electricity, water and sanitation supplies, all under the competent technical direction.
The City Council has already notified the order to the owners, as well as that they have a period of 10 days to certify the complete execution of these works. If it is not carried out, it will be the City Council itself who takes charge of this execution in a subsidiary manner, subsequently remitting the charge to the property. “From the Department of Urbanism we are intensifying inspections to detect deficiencies in buildings and thus guarantee compliance with all security measures,” concluded Castejón.
