Daily Dose of Blairmont 21

  • 1507 Monroe Street (VHS Partners LLC, January 2006)

September 2006

Blairmont's not the only entity responsible for the decay of this magnificent street view off of Florissant Avenue. They own the single house in the center, with the dormer and the striped asphalt shingles. It's a key house in the lineup; if it falls, the whole row will be diminished, a tooth knocked out.

The grand row on the right has belonged to a company called KGA Properties LLC since April 2005, and, well, they certainly haven't done much to improve the situtation.

The amazing church in the background, once St. Liborious Catholic Church, now belongs to "Hogan Street Partners LLC" (April 2004). Not much seems to be going on to save it, but that's hardly a change from the preceding decade.

Only that humble little house below the church steeple appears to have any real care and love and hope put into it, and y'know what? It's owner occupied. Whodathunkit?

I hope these KGA people get their act together. This block is too stupendous to lose.

As for Blairmont, well... uh...

It is a shame to see these kinds of buildings in the shape they are in.
