— City officials in Hot Springs say the vacant Majestic Hotel has major structural defects and is in violation of the city’s vacant structure ordinance.

The downtown hotel was closed in 2006 after 124 years of operation and the nonprofit group Arc Arkansas has been working to convert it into a combination residential apartment complex with retail businesses.

Officials with Arc Arkansas and with investor-developer Garrison Hassenflu, of Kansas City, Mo., could not be contacted for comment.

Hot Springs Neighborhood Services administrator Bart Jones told The Sentinel-Record that the problems include a leaking roof, broken and missing doors and winds, stagnant water in the swimming pool, mold, mildew and loose bricks.

The city says a detailed plan to “secure and stabilize” the building is needed
