Wrecking Cincinnati, 6/18/09

615 Clinton Springs Avenue, North Avondale
DOB: 1955
Died: February 2009
Cause of death: Built in 1949, with additions in 1953 and 1976, the Ohio School Facilities Commission and DeJong & Associates, Inc. found during a 2002 inspection that the building has poor ventilations, undersized classrooms, inadequate parking and bus drop-offs, and was not ADA-compliant.

Cincinnati Public Schools will replace it with a $14.3 million, 85,470-square-foot building for 650 students, to be completed in summer 2010.

Students are attending classes at the former Burton School at 876 Glenwood Avenue in Avondale until construction is completed.
