Wrecking Cincinnati, 4/13/09

132 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, Corryville
One- or two-family
DOB: Unsure
Died: October 2008
Cause of death: Again, no clue.

Owned by the University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees, who acquired the properties as MLK and Bishop in 2001.

Speculation has been that the land will be used to buffer the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency complex, although road widening and redevelopment have also come up as ideas. The fact that the buildings were removed while still under the ownership of UC points toward the latter, but this is only a wild guess.

I know, this is no better information than the posts about the two neighboring properties that bit the dust.
