Daily Dose of Blairmont 163

  • 3021 N. 20th Street (Union Martin LLC, May 2008, $80,000)

May 2008

Standing back-to-back with the houses lining beautiful St. Louis Place Park, this ought to be a valuable little building.

Instead, it stands with its context totally stripped away. An entire block of houses on nearby Wright Street has been obliterated due to Blairmont's wanton negligence. Vacant since 2005 but in surprisingly good condition, the house joined the Blairmont ranks only a few days after these photographs were taken.
