Wrecking Cincinnati, 4/23/09

1908 Seymour Avenue, Roselawn
DOB: 1970
Died: February 2009
Cause of death: The Academy of Multilingual Immersion Studies (K-8), formerly known as the Crest Hills School, is being razed for the construction of a new 63,032-square-foot school for 400 students.

A 2001 assessment by the Ohio Schools Facilities Commission and DeJong & Associates found that the building had inadequate ventilation systems, room sizes that do not meet Ohio standards, poor site circulation, a lack of bus loading and unloading space, and was not ADA-compliant.
