Camden will inspect the vacant, city owned Radio Lofts building in the wake of safety concerns raised by a local blogger.
In a post headlined 'Downtown Danger,' the NJ Poverty Reality blog published photos of cracked exterior brickwork, warped window frames, and material it said has fallen from the onetime RCA Building #8 at 2nd and Cooper streets.
"The building is solid," says city business administrator Robert Corrales, adding that personnel nevertheless will take a look and make a report. He adds there is no reason to believe the structure is in danger of collapsing, as the blog suggests.
The 10-story building was erected in 1924 and has been vacant since the 1990s. It was gutted, and industrial contaminants were partly remediated, in preparation for construction of 86 condo units by Dranoff Properties. The Philadelphia firm earlier transformed the adjacent "Nipper" building into the stylish Victor Apartments.
