We asked local performance artist Gabriel Brown to reprise his roll as Old City Hall for this very special Tacomic edition of Flip This House/Hall and it's about god damn time.  Do you think we can petition to get the Port of Tacoma to designate the Kalakala as a dangerous building?

That's pretty funny RR. Say, how are things going down at your new business? Why don't you post a few pictures of Tinkertopia?

Save Old City Hall before it is too late and it goes the way of the Luzon.

Given it's continual deteriorating condition year after year. I give Old City Hall a 50 percent chance of surviving.

I don't think the OCH is doomed anytime soon.  What may be doomed, within our lifetimes, is the clock tower.  It affords a developer very little square footage for the amount of upkeep it will eventually (today!) need.

The only way this structure stays intact, over the next half century, is if the city buys it.  I suggest making a... City Hall out of it!

Citizens could also form a corporation & buy it ourselves.

Once again we see the liberals failing to seize a wonderful opportunity to purchase a distressed property at what would probably be a bargain basement price.

Somebody needs to hit the landlord over the head or something.  I think he is still holding out for big money... should have foreclosed long ago

The problem with the plan to have the city make the repairs and putting a lien on the property is that the repair bill may exceed the value of the property. For example: what if it costs $10M for the city to repair the roof, the bathrooms and the stairway and the property ends ups selling at auction for $5M? Who is going to satisfy the deficiency?
