FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A notice of condemnation was posted on the door of The Hub Entertainment Center Monday.
The notice from the Allen County Building, Unsafe Structures, and Minimum Housing Department indicates that the building is unsafe. The notice has fueled rumors on social media that the venue has been facing trouble ever since it took over for Piere’s last fall.
However, Chris Cave, the general manager of The Hub said that the comments are just rumors and the venue will in fact reopen.
“It’s not going to be able to happen overnight, but really it’s not much that we have to get done in order to open back up,” Cave said. “It was just blown really far out of proportion with all the rumors and gossip.”
When asked what the venue needs to do in order to reopen Cave indicated that at least two outlets, including one by the main bar need to be brought up to code.
“It went quite a while without anyone doing anything that should have been done to the place,” Cave said. “So now that a new owner has come in, all of that kind of has been thrown in our lap.”
Despite the notice, Cave is assured that the venue will reopen again soon, though he did not indicate a specific date.
“We’re going to have all of the important stuff knocked out so that way we can get back to open the doors not only to our customers but to our employees,” Cave said.
