Daily Dose of Blairmont 110

  • 3101 Lismore Street (Noble Development Co. LLC, September 2006)

May 2008

Vacant since 1999, this house stands on a short stretch of street in JeffVanderLou. Its only surviving neighbor is the spectacular St. Augustine Catholic Church, currently in a state of minimal use by a small local church.

Until recently, the house stood back-to-side with two neighbors, also owned by Blairmont:
  • 2559 W. Sullivan Street (Blairmont Associates LLC, May 2005, $12,000)
  • 2561 W. Street (Blairmont Associates LLC, May 2005)

Both were demolished in 2007.

The LRA owns the vacant lots to the west, which always seem to have activity going on -- guys sitting around, smoking, chatting, or barbecuing. I believe a small industrial business of some sort is located across the street. It's always been kind of an awkward spot to pull out a camera and start snapping.
