A facade of glass has begun to fall in the heart of Georgetown, forcing residents to evacuate, and the city’s mayor has ordered a federal investigation into the incident.
The facade of the glass facade at 614 N. Hoyt St., which is in Georgetown’s historic Georgetown neighborhood, has begun sliding off in the neighborhood of Georgetown.
The Georgetown City Council voted to take the matter to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on Wednesday, according to the mayor’s office.
“We want to get to the bottom of this and we want to know what’s going on,” Mayor Mark J. Fetterman said in a statement.
“We want the Department of Justice to be involved and we don’t want this to happen again.
If there’s anything that we can do to prevent it from happening, I would like to know about it.”
The facade was built in 1911, according the Georgetown Historical Society.
The building is one of several historic properties in Georgetown that has been built over the years.
The building, which is adjacent to Georgetown University, has been occupied since the 1930s by the Georgetown National Bank.
It is owned by the American Bank of Commerce.
