Someone has claimed standing with the former R & T Furniture building, and is "in the process of redeeming it," Town Administrator John Coderre says.
Coderre told selectmen Monday night that the parties stepped forward as Northborough has gone through the foreclosure process on the site, at 40 West Main St.
Town officials want those people "to secure the structure," Coderre said.
In September, Selectmen Chairman Leslie Rutan expressed concern about the building's condition.
Monday night, she said that "it still looks bad. It's obviously still an eyesore."
