More shitbox construction coming in place of that cool duplex…
Sold in September by the estate of the previous owner. Not surprising it’s going away, the heirs obviously didn’t want it, and no one in their right mid is going to pay $450k for a duplex that needs a major renovation and keep it as a rental. And, how do you know it will be replaced by a “shit box”? The houses shown on the new owner’s website aren’t awful.
