A building at the corner of Eastern Avenue and Broadway in Fells Point collapsed this morning, causing Eastern Avenue to be closed in both directions.
The building, 500 South Broadway, is currently owned by 504 South Broadway, LLC. The registered agent for 504 South Broadway, LLC is Patrick Curran, of 11433 Pulaski Highway in White Marsh.
In 2003, the Maryland DLLR fined Curran for “holding himself out as a licensed CPA”, when in fact his license had expired in 1992. According to a 2009 District Court case (5C00309671), it looks as though he’s still posing as a CPA, despite his failure to obtain a license.
We hope the City looks into Mr. Curran’s business practices and investigates the collapse of this building.
