Wrecking Cincinnati, 8/19/10

1625 Tremont Avenue, South Fairmount
DOB: 1890s
Died: September 2009
Cause of death: Rotten roof, gutters, downspouts and floors; missing, broken, or vandalized mechanical systems; and litter and debris. Junked cars were found parked on the lawn, and calls for City barricades were necessary on at least three occasions.

The vacant building was declared a public nuisance in June 2004. The owner attempted to gain a stay of demolition, but he was extremely over-mortgaged and couldn't afford to make the required repairs.

An additional condemnation was issued in late 2008. The building was razed by the City following asbestos abatement.
