There’s still a long way to go before Dover gets its new five-story mixed-use building, and its developer is getting fined for his role in the delay.
Demolition is now complete at the former Bayard Hotel, but developer Henry Mast now owes $2,500 for taking too long to knock down the building and creating a potential safety hazard. The hotel was partially deconstructed for two weeks.
The Wilmington News Journal reports Mast has been fined for “maintaining a known hazard,” and Mast still has to remove the debris and cover the hole in a reasonable amount of time.
His proposal calls for street-level retail and 48 apartments on the upper floors.
