Wrecking Cincinnati, 4/21/10

922 Findlay Street, West End
DOB: 1880
Died: July 2009
Cause of death: Damage to the cornice and brick work, missing and broken windows, damaged plaster and cracked walls, water damage, no utilities, raccoon infestation.

The building was condemned in April 2007 and declared a public nuisance in September 2008. Ownership changed during this point, taking its former owner off the hook for a planned criminal case.

The new owner planned to bring the structure up to Vacated Building Maintenance License (VBML) standards, but apparently was unable to do so. It was razed by the City following asbestos abatement.
