Chase tower closing for renovations, needs ‘critical' repairs

The tenants of the Chase tower in downtown South Bend must relocate so the new owners can begin making critical repairs.

The Bradley Company, which provides property management services to the owner of the Chase tower, made the announcement in a press release Monday.

According to the Bradley Company, water leaks last weekend caused further damage to the building and are making it difficult for some of businesses in the tower to operate.

The company says the maintenance needs of the building are now critical.

The tenants are being asked to vacate as soon as possible. The management company says they hope to have most of the tenants relocated within 30 days.

One tenant said he thinks he know what happened.

“The heat, we believe, was turned off by management company or somebody with the building and that caused a significant pipe to burst, or something,” said Vince Campiti, attorney with Nemeth, Feeney, Masters and Campiti.

The owner plans to rehabilitate and renovate the building.
