YEAR BUILT: 1909
OWNER: CSX Transportation
ASSESSED VALUE: $23,420
ORDERS: April 2009, for windows, exterior walls, and damaged structural elements.
CONDEMNED: November 2010, building attracting criminal activity.
REASON RAZED: A lease agreement between CSX and the Cincinnati Preservation Association (CPA) to move and rehabilitate the building expired in May, and CSX declined to renew it. A half dozen potential buyers had emerged in the two and a half years of CPA involvement, but a viable development plan could not be found. The former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad station was last used in 2008 by a recycling business.
