“Can’t wait to find a buyer for this condo!” writes real-estate agent Veso Kossev. “Too bad I can’t take [anyone] to see it…..” Huh? Oh, yeah . . . it’s unit E5 at the Park Memorial Condominiums, otherwise known as the 4.85-acre land of limbo just north of Memorial Dr. at Detering. As of a few days ago, you can pick up this 2-bedroom, 2-bath, only partially smashed condo for the low, low price of just $47,000. But you won’t be able to have it inspected — or see it yourself — because the entire complex has been condemned by the city. Where’d these lovely interior photos in the listing come from, then?

Well, at least somebody‘s been able to get in to have a look at the place.
How are all the absentee owners of the other Park Memorial condos faring? According to reports, many units are in similar shape, and this unit is one of several owned by a bank — if that provides any clue. Maybe someday all the legal wrangling will end, the owners of all 108 condos will all agree to sell the land to the same buyer for the same price, and the buyer of this unit will be able to make some big bucks.
