U Lofts Condominium Complex Still Needs Work

The U Lofts across from Texas Tech University are not ready for occupancy.  City inspectors say there is still some work to do. 

The college condominium complex was re-inspected on Wednesday, after it failed inspection on Friday.

"We do, still at this point lack the fire suppression, fire alarm system, but they're working on that diligently. Once those two systems are in place, I don't see anything that would stop occupancy in this building on a temporary basis," Lubbock's Chief Building Official Steve O'Neal said. 

U Lofts owner/developer Dean Minardi tells NewsChannel 11 that the fire marshal's office has authorized overtime.  They plan to work on the fire system all night Wednesday, and hope to have it certified by Thursday morning.

"Barring some unforeseen circumstances, move in date is still tomorrow (Thursday), it's just going to be a little later tomorrow than 8 o'clock in the morning," Minardi said.

    Trump's demand puts further pressure on the Justice Department, which later Sunday asked its watchdog to expand an existing probe of FBI actions, as the White House combats the threat posed by special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation.
