A state judge has mandated Skyline Apartments to employ security on its premises at all times.
The ruling states the embattled apartment building have two security officers at the complex 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
It also mandates that any time there is not two officers on duty, the complex must notify Syracuse police and fix the issue within 90 minutes.
The ruling comes after the murder of 93-year-old Connie Tuori last year.
Syracuse mayor Ben Walsh released a statement on the decision.
"The only outcome we seek is safe, quality housing for the residents of Skyline Apartments and the community. The city has been fighting this battle for years, and we welcome the court’s assistance in holding Green National accountable to its responsibilities as a landlord."
