By Wednesday, most residents were gone, with the remaining few expected to leave within days, he said.
The engineer found issues with columns in Regent Palace’s parking area during a follow-up inspection in mid-July, the board president said. In an email to the town Monday, which the town provided, Mr. Dogondke said there were 15 compromised columns, which he said have been shored up.
