Owners of Kensington mill cited over 2d property

Posted: April 19, 2012

Philadelphia's Department of Licenses and Inspections issued three citations Wednesday against a building in the 700 block of Market Street owned by Yechiel, Nahman, and Michael Lichtenstein, who also owned the Kensington building that burned last week, killing two firefighters.

An L&I spokeswoman said the fire had prompted a review of all Lichtenstein properties, leading to the new citations on Market Street, which included operating a multifamily dwelling without a housing-inspection license, failure to keep fire-alarm testing records and certificates on site, and improper maintenance of the facade.

The Lichtenstein entity that owns the property owes Philadelphia about $278,000 in unpaid taxes on the Market Street site.
