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:
Finally, after four years of court hearings and inaction on the part of the former owner, 1101 Nanticoke Street has a new owner — Karen Gross, a Baltimore realtor. Hopefully she will do something with the home and it can be sold, alleviating the nightmare the former owners caused.
And now the house was set on fire. (Updated December 19, 2014.)
This home was originally posted in 2011, and sadly — conditions have gotten worse.
Property Address: 1117 Carroll Street, Baltimore, MD 21230
Property Owner: Irene Davis, same address. Interesting to note, in 2009, Heidi Kenny (of ground rent and tax foreclosure fame) filed to foreclose on this home, yet the case was subsequently dismissed.)
City Council District and Contact: District 10, Ed Reisinger
State Senator: Verna Jones Rodwell
A bunch of properties featured on the blog will be auctioned off at the end of the month — hopefully they’ll go to owners will will do something with them, and not people who will continue to let them deteriorate.
Many thanks to the attorneys at Baltimore Housing for their hard work getting these properties away from their neglectful owners:
