How many bathrooms is the center permitted for?
The building at 414 Spring St. has four operational bathrooms. Two of these are located in the area designated as the public space of the building while two others are within a separate area denoted for storage. By law, a minimum of two public-use restrooms is required for this occupancy level. The two public restrooms were inspected as part of the recent permit work, although no structural upgrades were needed or performed in those spaces. (Note: This building was originally constructed in 1947 and the city’s permit records are unclear as to exactly when the different restrooms were installed.)
