(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – A Lawrenceburg retail center has been deemed unsafe for the public to step foot inside.

The Durbin Plaza on Front Street used to be home to a Dollar General, a printing shop, and an antique gallery, all of which have either closed or relocated in recent weeks. The former occupants had reported leaks in the roof, collapsing ceilings, and sewage backups.

An unsafe building order was posted on Tuesday.

Lawrenceburg Building Inspector Carl Fryman requested Monday an unsafe building hearing with the Lawrenceburg Board of Works. The board approved Fryman’s request and set the public meeting for Thursday, August 7 at 5:00 p.m.

The 40,000 square foot building and property is owned by Cincinnati resident Akram Daniel’s DIY LLC. Daniel purchased the building in May 2013, tax records indicate.
