The Islandwide Beautification Taskforce in conjunction with the Department of Public Works, Guam Visitors Bureau and Guam Hotel and Restaurant Association have been working diligently to minimize the existence of these abandoned buildings by trying to restore these properties to productive use or by demolishing them.
For the two years the Abandoned Building Initiative has targeted the following three buildings: Lumang Hong Kong Restaurant Building, Marianas Trench Building and the Old Western Gun Club. Sa ngayon, Lumang Hong Kong Restaurant sa Ruta 1 sa Tamuning, has been purchased. The building is fenced off temporarily until it is scheduled for demolition. A walk through by DPW was completed at The Old Western Gun at San Vitores Road in Tumon. The DPW inspection report recommends that the building be demolished. DPW ay nasa proseso ng nagtatrabaho kasama ang mga landowners at nangungupahan -closure ng isyu ay malapit nang mangyari. The Marianas Trench Building in Tamuning has already be demolished.
