Update: 1000 Scott Street

This is an interesting property — a small apartment building in a block with single-family homes.  It caught fire a few years ago and has sat deteriorating ever since.  The property has now become a problem for the home next door, and the city has filed for receivership.

What makes it interesting — the guy who currently owns it, Brian Winfield, purchased the home after the fire and never did anything with it.  He also purchased other homes (some through the city’s Vacants to Value auctions) and has now been banned from participating in future auctions, due to his inability to rehab the homes in a timely fashion.
