Orange County Government Center End-Work Request Dismissed

A state supreme court judge ruled on Wednesday that work can continue on the Orange County government offices on Wednesday. Goshen Attorney Michael Sussman filed a request to temporarily stop work on the $79 million project in a final attempt to save the unique 1960’s Paul Rudolph designed structure. So far crews have gutted the interior of the architectural landmark, which was damaged by flooding in 2011’s Hurricane Irene and are set to demolish the building’s facade starting August 1. Sussman’s lawsuit challenged environmental studies done by the county, and was filed to save the structure from the plans to strip the cement from the sides and redo two of the buildings while adding a new four-story building as well set to begin November 1. The judge ruled that attorney’s in the case must file a response to Sussman’s request to halt the demolition by August 6.
