I have sadly lost track of how many times I have posted this deteriorating structure over the past few years. It is located in East Whiteland Township adjacent to the Wawa at Planebrook and Lancaster Avenue in Frazer, behind Osman’s Pizza.
This is a property in a dangerous state of deterioration and it is not secured. It should be secured, it should have been taken down a couple of years ago.
It adds a certain je ne sais quoi to a stretch of Lancaster Avenue that has a slum quality. And before you go bashing me for that opinion remember that’s where people with few options as far as affordable housing live and I doubt it’s bargain basement rental fees.
Not everything along here has the need to be McMansion central but it could look better than it does. And it demonstrates a need for safe affordable housing.
Christmas 2016 there was a nasty fire adjacent to the Wawa on Planebrook Rd and Lancaster Avenue in Frazer. Here we are now in January, 2020 and ramshackle as a description doesn’t even cover what visibly appears to be a seriously deteriorating structure now does it?
What is going on with this structure? Everyone said that it would come down but it hasn’t so what’s up? We all of course also thought about it again when the human trafficking story broke in East Whiteland in 2020.
Does this structure look safe? Does it look properly secured? Does it give a whole new je ne sais quois to the term slumlord still?
Again, it’s 2021. The fire was 2016. I know these things take time. But it’s clearly a hazard is it not?
