Sorry Charlie's facade inspection to take place Friday

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah city officials say the sidewalks and streets around the old Sorry Charlie's could re-open by Friday night, if all goes according to plan.

Engineers are expected to be down at the building where the facade crumbled to the ground last weekend, closing the area to pedestrians.

City spokesman Bret Bell says the current owner of the building is selling to a new owner and the future of the property is looking up.

"They have just positioned a lift out there in front of the building and they are doing a tactile inspection to make sure there is no more debris falling and that is is safe for pedestrians and there is access on the street below," Bell told WTOC.

Bell says the city hopes to have a better idea of where the situation stands after the prospective buyers' engineers survey the sight Friday.
