Left for work this morning in bitter cold and to my surprise found the entire block of Sellers Ave. closed and Chester Pike behind it. This one of the few remaining blocks that still has all of the original victorians still lining the street, all nicely restored, except for one... with so much potential. And I just knew when I saw the firetrucks and ladders, which one it had to be....
A great Queen Ann with lots of potential, and I would drive by everyday wishing someone would bring it back... but looks like that may be too late now. The 2nd and 3rd floors look pretty much done, but first floor especially being stone looks like water damage only - could it be saved? I certainly think so, but reality is it's easier to tear down and build more apartments.
Fortunately nobody was reported hurt. Hopefully at least some parts will be salvaged if it does get knocked down.
