Revere seeks suspension of payment for convicted building, seeks to exclude others

Reverend Mayor Brian Arrigo is asking a court to take urgent action in connection with a 16-storey apartment building that was condemned after a fire caused significant damage. 370 Ocean Avenue in Revere Beach. “They have refused to step up in any meaningful way and the city will go up in their absence,” Arrigo told WCVB Thursday night. A fire on June 21 started on the outdoor deck of an 11th-floor unit. The fire department said the building suffered significant water damage. Residents were informed that the property was unsafe and the building was condemned two weeks later. According to the mayor’s statement, the goal of the estate administration is to oversee the improvements needed for the property. An inspection conducted by Revere Inspectional Services inside the structure on Thursday provided an assessment of the current conditions. “There’s mold, there’s electrical damage that’s happened,” Arrigo said. “There are electrical upgrades that need to be performed. There are entire units that have been completely torn down and not cleaned up in any particular way.” If suspension of payments is granted, the city said updated lists of violations would be provided to the recipient designated by the court. Displaced residents are being offered financial assistance from the city, and Arrigo’s office said it expects to cover the costs through lawsuits with the property owner, the Carabetta family. Revere is expected to hold a meeting for displaced residents next week. Arrigo also said the city is moving to foreclose on all three properties owned by the Carabetta family. The mayor’s office said they owe $ 1.9 million in taxes to the city. “We will take all possible legal action against Carabetta to ignore their legal obligations and total disregard for human dignity and decency as landowners and property managers in our city,” Arrigo said in a statement.
