HIGH POINT, N.C. — The condemned Kilby Hotel in High Point will remain standing for now.
The Guilford County Historic Preservation Commission voted Tuesday night to delay the building’s demolition for 180 days.
During that time, officials will evaluate whether or not the building could become structurally sound. If not, plans to tear down the hotel will move forward.
One Guilford County Commissioner said the situation with the building should be dealt with sooner rather than later.
Last month, part of East Washington Street in front of the hotel was blocked off due to safety concerns.
The building’s owner had until the end of October to make the repairs, but was unable to raise the money to do so.
