Wrecking Cincinnati, 9/17/08

3145 Van Buren Avenue, Avondale
DOB: 1890
Died: August 2008
Cause of death: Roof failure, front and side porches collapsing and defective siding, gutters, and downspouts.

It was condemned in August 2007, though orders date back to August 2003. The previous owner was raising dogs in the building and the current owner was using the house for storage while plodding along slowly on addressing the code violations.

The current owner razed the building shortly before pre-prosecution hearings were scheduled.
