PHILADELPHIA - A judge ordered the owners of Lindley Towers in Philadelphia to make all necessary repairs and put safety systems in place after a partial collapse in the building’s facade last Wednesday.Tenants were forced to evacuate and have been staying in temporary housing since then.
Some are staying with friends, others are in shelters and tenant Joshua Allen said he’s been living out of his car."I’ve been on the streets since then.
I’ve been sleeping in my car. Bags in my car, front seat, back seat. I don’t have anywhere to go. They promised me that they were going to call me, but they haven’t done that," Allen said.City lawyers called the seven-story building imminently dangerous and said it’s in horrendous condition.
In court, a lawyer told the judge the owners of Lindley Towers failed to maintain the building and led the facade to collapse.MORE LOCAL HEADLINES"Eight days ago my whole life was uprooted.
