Wrecking Cincinnati, 12/2/09

2650 Melrose Avenue, Walnut Hills
DOB: 1910
Died: April 2009
Cause of death: Cracked and bulging concrete and masonry walls, broken lintels, and deterioration to the gutters, eves and downspouts.

It appears that the owner was deceased.

The building was condemned in February 2004 and declared a public nuisance in December 2006. It took two years to put together a demolition contract (possibly due to probate issues), but it was eventually razed by the City following asbestos abatement.
