Wrecking Cincinnati, 9/26/08

3016 Price Avenue, East Price Hill
DOB: 1900
Died: August 2008
Cause of death: A deteriorated retaining/foundation wall, rotting wood, damaged overhang supports, and a lack of windows that required numerous City barricades. There were also violations with the cornice, soffit, and gutters and downspouts.

Problems with the property date back to at least 2001, but it has never been condemned. In 2007, a new owner had begun interior demolition and was apparently planning to rehabilitate the structure.

The City vacated the property in May. It was razed by the owner.
