Wrecking Cincinnati, 6/17/09

3154 Bracken Woods Lane, Westwood
DOB: 1941
Died: March 2009
Cause of death: Once owned by two men from the Dayton suburb of Oakwood and later seized in foeclosure proceedings, the building had numerous broken windows, a defective roof, missing gutters and downspouts, interior water damage, a deteriorated front porch, and a lot of litter. The property required City barricading on several occasions.

The building has been vacant since at least 2001. It was condemned in June 2008 and declared a public nuisance in January 2009.

The multi-family structure was razed privately. A criminal case against the prior owners was dismissed without prejudice at the owners' costs.
