Wrecking Cincinnati, 10/20/09

3063 Kerper Avenue, Walnut Hills
DOB: 1905
Died: June 2009
Cause of death: Rotting structural wall and roof framing, a failing roof, missing mechanical systems, rotted flooring, missing front porch, deteriorated gutters and downspouts, missing windows, weather damage, and litter.

The house was condemned in April 2007 and declared a public nuisance in July 2008. A criminal case against the owner was filed that same month. Since 2005, the owner has claimed financial problems and a dispute with his lender has kept him from compliance.

The building was razed by the City following asbestos abatement.
