619 26th Ave N Officially Boarded and Vacant
Guest post and photo by the Hawthorne Hawkman.
Two months ago, I spotted a yellow placard posted at the (formerly) notorious drug house at 619 26th Ave N. The doors had been boarded to keep trespassers from breaking in, and the city gave the owner until January 23, 2010 to remove the boards or it would be classified as a boarded/vacant property and condemned. It should come as no surprise that the owner failed to prevent this from happening. In fact, as soon as the property was vacated, neighbors had speculated that the owner would just walk away.
He hasn't quite done that yet. The Hennepin County website does not list this property has having gone to a sheriff sale yet, and the property is listed on the MLS with a list price of $59,900. And no, there is no sarcasm font there.
Do not click "Read More," but do keep an eye on this property to make sure squatters don't come around.
