Wrecking Cincinnati, 3/30/10

2857-2861 Fischer Place, Westwood
DOB: Likely 1920s
Died: July 2009
Cause of death: Razed by the City after it was declared a public nuisance due to broken and missing windows, missing copper plumbing, a defective roof, defective porches, and water damage.

The attached buildings were targeted by the Westwood Civic Association, who called the location a "detrimental influence" on the neighborhood, citing 121 police calls to the property between 2006 and 2008.

Once owned by IB Property Holdings LLC of Miami, the property, now known at 2859 Fischer Place, is owned by the City of Cincinnati and is slated for a green residential redevelopment project.
