UTICA – A decision has not yet been made regarding the former Hollyrock building on Varick Street in Utica.

A structural engineer ruled that the building could collapse, and the City of Utica condemned the building after it was damaged during construction.

Following the decision last night by city common councilors to table that decision, a public hearing has now been scheduled for April 16.

Building officials with the Landmarks Society of Greater Utica say they still need to do a full conditions report on the building before it can be demolished.

“The Scenic Historic Commission really deals primarily with the outside, because it's all contributory towards the various facades along the street. You can almost do what you want on the inside,” said Mike Bosak, vice president of the Landmarks Society.

Any building that lies within the Scenic and Historic Preservation District of Utica must be individually reviewed before the city can make a final decision.
