As lawyers, regulators, bankruptcy officials and the landlord spar over the case, the building lies in disrepair, too contaminated to lease.
The building, at 9586 E. Interstate 25 Frontage Road, was occupied by Abound Solar from 2008 through 2012 and has remained unoccupied since the company failed. In the interim, local government officials and the building’s owner have attempted to compel Abound Solar’s bankruptcy trustee, Wilmington, Del.-based Joeffrey Burtch, to clean the building, contaminated with the metal cadmium. The Business Report obtained documents about the building from a Colorado Open Records Act request to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
