The two remaining occupants of the Imperial Mall have another two weeks in the building, thanks to lieniency from the state fire marshal’s office.
The Nebraska State Fire Marshal’s Office extended the deadline for Namdar Realty Group of Great Neck, New York, to fix code deficiencies.
Alyssa Sanders, deputy state fire marshal and public information officer for the Nebraska State Fire Marshal’s Office, said the new deadline has been set, providing another two weeks for repairs.
Monday had been the previous deadline to fix code deficiencies, which include replacing ceiling tiles, updating the sprinkler system and emergency lighting.
The Fire Marshal’s Office conducted its five-year inspection in January and found multiple code violations. Originally, fire marshals gave mall owners a deadline of Feb. 22 to fix the violations, which has now been extended four times.
Lifehouse Church and Napoli’s Italian Restaurant are the two remaining occupants in the building.
