DETROIT (WXYZ) - Those living in Detroit's Lafayette Towers apartments say they've been using stoves, ovens and space heaters to keep warm.
"I'm 70-years-old and living under these conditions is just ridiculous," says Gabrielle McEaddy who lives on the 21st floor.
On Monday, a notice was posted that indicated contractors were working on the heating issues and that the "process includes the installation of 10 new boilers within both towers."
In December of 2012, Gregory Jackson of Prestige Autos purchased the property. And while Jackson says he is investing millions into upgrades at the towers, residents say they have been disappointed with the progress.
Jackson tells 7 Action News that the heat isn't working due to leaks that were recently discovered in the system, but that they anticipate the heat to be on in the next 24 to 48 hours.
