Daily Dose of Blairmont 180

  • 1124 Tyler Street (MLK 3000 LLC, February 2007, $45,000)

August 2008. 1122-1124 is the building on the right.

Blairmont owns the half on the right; a private citizen has the left half at 1122. Neither seems to be making very good use of the building, which is tucked away in a rather hidden corner of Old North, right under the old elevated rail lines (slated to become a bike path.)

Now, wouldn't you be shocked to discover that Blairmont owns a building that was inhabited just a few short years ago?

Of course you wouldn't!

How 'bout if I told you that the city had to board up Blairmont's building for them? No? Not a shock either?

What if I told you that the building still isn't secure? That wouldn't surprise you either?

Is there anything about Blairmont that does come as a shock at this point? Anything at all?
