Apartments.comSan Juan Apartments closed in Emergency Order from the City of Seattle. San Juan Apartments closed by City of Seattle in emergency order 01/20/2017 updated 15 minutes ago The City of Seattle issued an Emergency Order to "Vacate and Close" the San Juan Apartments at 4840 California Ave. SW due to hazardous conditions effective immediately. The 28 unit, three story building, fully rented must be evacuated. No word has been issued on what will happen to the residents or how long the work will take. It is the result of the owners initial refusal to repair extensive roof leaks. Work started after notice was posted on Wednesday. According to a source that asked not to be identified this order was initiated because the City had declared a top floor apartment uninhabitable because of black mold a few months ago." The order states, "We received a complaint about this property. Housing and Zoning Inspector Rachel Freeman 206-684-4527 or, investigated and identified conditions that are considered high hazard as described in Section 22.306.260 of the Seattle Housing and Building Maintenance Code. These conditions represent a threat to the safety or health of the occupants or the public, or an imminent hazard to the extent that people in or around the building are in serious jeopardy of life or limb. Based on this finding, it is ordered that the building be vacated and closed no later than 12:00 PM, Friday January 20, 2017. The order cites "Extensive Water Intrusion and water damage from leaking roof." We encourage our readers to comment. No registration is required.
