I notice no one posts on this board from Highland, but I will take a chance that someone will see this message.
They are building a hotel or apartments on the old Shaver Pontiac property on 45th. It has been my belief that all commercial building especially motels and such should have metal framing. This place is being erected with entire wood from truss roof to the pre fabricated wooden walls. If I ever saw a fire trap, this is it. The wooden truss are not in place yet. I wonder if they have any fire walls in the plans. At times some strange construction has gone up in Highland from time after time. For instance , the Condo's where the Highland Lumber once stood. They almost sit on the sidewalk when they are in their living rooms. With this being allowed many more condo's were completed on these small lots. That condo erection was approved by a old city board, but I understand it's the same building commissioner at present.
