Great news! These two homes were purchased in December, and the new owner is looking forward to starting the work to bring them back to life. I was given a tour of one of the homes the owner did nearby, and it’s absolutely beautiful. They received Federal historic tax credits, and as a result, so many of the home’s original features were preserved.
I can’t wait to see what happens to these two — you can read the original post here.
Thanks to Reader RW for the photo — what a wonderful renovation of this once-blighted home! And the work was done with permits, too!
This is what the home looked like back in 2012:
This is what it looks like today:
These properties are scheduled to be demolished July 1, 2015. One other property on this block was demolished (a large corner building) and the parcel will be turned into a fenced parking lot for the short term. Hopefully someone will eventually purchase the lot and build something to benefit the surrounding neighborhood.
In the meantime, have a look at 923 while it’s still standing. Sadly, the condition of this property only declined since 2011 when the original information was posted.
Sadly, this home is under the same ownership and is in the same (or worse) condition as when this post was written.
1243 Glyndon Avenue today:
This property is still a vacant eyesore, and is still under the same ownership by a Patterson Park resident.
Here’s what it looks like today:
This property is now making its way through the receivership process. Hopefully it will be sold and the new owners will not allow this property to become a nuisance to the neighbors.
This property went into receivership and is being auctioned off — hopefully the next buyer will be more responsible than the last.
Buyer beware — clean up your blight, or lose your properties!
