A decrepit one-story building on East Main Street is no more. A Broken Sidewalk tipster wrote in a little while back to tell us about an intent to demolish poster spotted on the structure, and reported that last week, the building finally came down.
Architecturally unimportant, the concrete block building was set back from the sidewalk and covered in graffiti. The roof had partially caved in and the boards covering the window openings had fallen off, too. It’s nice when a demolition in urban Louisville actually takes down a building worth razing.
Our tipster reports this morning that the property owner was spotted spreading hay on the now vacant lot to prevent mud from washing off the site. The PVA lists the owner as Zax Properties, managed by Robert Zax, a Louisville dermatologist. Apparently, there are no plans for the land in the short-term, but eventually the owner envisions a mixed-use commercial and residential infill structure similar to what is commonly built in Boston today.
