After Decades of Neglect, 430 Manor Place Finally Being Renovated

At long last, the long vacant and blighted rowhouse at 430 Manor Place is finally being renovated. There has been a lot of concern with this property. Not only was there a strong desire to get the property back in habitable condition, but once that started to become a reality, there were concerns about whether the house would have a third floor addition or large rear addition.

Based on what I’ve been told to date, the house will not be popped up. There will be a rear addition of some type (possibly around 20′), and the cellar will be dug out for a basement unit.

According to building permits, the current scope of work is for new non-bearing partition walls, new bathroom and kitchen fixtures, new electric devices, no rewiring, and a new HVAC system.

You can see what the property looked like prior to renovations and read some of the background of why it was blighted from this 2011 post.

    I really think they should consider popping it up. Would be worth a lot more if they did.

    But — anything is better than nothing with this old eyesore.

    Huzzah for development! Onward and upward!

    Kent,

    Base on the 2011 post, how was the issue tax liability to property value issue resolved?

    • Kent Says:

      From what I understand, the taxes were negotiated down/partially forgiven to a reasonable level that would allow for new ownership.
