Imminent demolition on 21st Street

The house at 1204 North 21st Street, vacant since at least the early 2000s, has been declared to be unsafe and is facing imminent demolition. The front of the building appears detached and the back of the building is bulging alarmingly. The property is owned by Taylor’s Vision LLC, who own 3 other properties in the area, including the law offices of John L. Taylor on the 25th Street traffic circle and a recently demolished house at 1712 North 20th Street.

I was always fascinated by it as a kid… I thought someone could fix it.

Sad to loose another house. Looks like it was in very bad shape. Could have been saved with preventative maintenance by the owner before it got this far. Another example of people not caring about our historic neighborhoods. I am just hoping any new infill will replicate a similar original design house.

How does the photo of the house at 1712 N 20th relate to the demolished house at 1204 N 21st ?

@4 I believe John was establishing a pattern with this particular LLC. The second paragraph makes the connection.
