Not Even Bankruptcy Can Keep Union Trust From Going to Pieces

By
Union Trust's interior.

Talk about insult to injury: Union Trust well the building that once housed the too-big-to-fail-but-still-failed steakhouse is literally going to pieces. Youll recall that the bankruptcy proceedings last December dealt the restaurant a fatal blow. Though bad plumbing was cited for its abrupt closing, the padlocked doors told a much different story. Now, according to Philly Chit Chat, Union Trusts historic and most grandiose exterior is raining down chunks of stone and mortar onto Chestnut Street below. And the city is not too keen about it. A bright orange Notice of Violation has been plastered to the shuttered restaurants facade. It states that if repairs arent made by March 6, the city will move in to completely demo the architectural gem. Heres hoping someone intervenes to prevent this tragedy. [Philly Chit Chat]
