Lam said Monday she is hopeful the foreclosure sale will be canceled after further talks with lenders.

“We're in the process of working it out with the bank,” Lam said. “We will have a new restaurant opening in the next two weeks and three new tenants coming in.”

Claus said he has no certainty about what fate might await the property if it proceeds to a foreclosure sale.

“It's a difficult building,” Claus said. “It's a fantastic building. We recognize its value. It's an important icon for the city.

“But the building was built for one use — a bank — which limits re-use options.”
