Center City workers and neighbors who crowd the busy sidewalk along the 1500 block of Chestnut Street were startled to see yellow tape blocking off the spot where heavy pieces of marble had crashed down. City officials say the marble peeled away from the building’s façade, raining onto the sidewalk around midnight when, due to the hour and bitter weather, fewer people were walking. Officials say no one was hurt.
Back on January 27th, bricks rained down from an adjoining building, crashing through the roof of a business nearby in the 1500 block of Walnut Street and injuring three people. Officials say the building, whose owners were not available for comment, did not have any violations. As they removed chunks of marble for further analysis, they indicated that water seeping behind the stone then freezing loosened it, causing the partial collapse. It’s the same cause of the earlier collapse in January.
