N&R report on the City of Greensboro’s official takeover of the Cascade Saloon via eminent domain holds out hope that the crumbling building “may get a new lease on life.”

But the report doesn’t mention that in addition to bids for a new roof and a “stabilization system,” the city will also take bids to demolish the building and grade the site. Brace yourselves, preservationists —that’s a very real scenario.
