How many historic buildings in Detroit have been razed by Gilbert companies?
Is this for casino parking?
It's almost always the same bullcrap story- demolition by neglect because these organizations fail to maintain their property, and the city governments fail to enforce their own laws and allows them to reach this poiint of no return. These groups magically always have enough money to flee to the burbs and obtain new digs!! Isn't that amazing? Proof they could have been maintaining existing infrastructure all along. The final nail in the coffin for these properties is their astronomically high listing prices for the unwanted real estate. Of course we are going to end up with this "wipe the slate clean" mentality that begets a new, mediocre structure, if we are lucky to escape the land becoming a parking lot.Pathetic observation about our throw-away society... and another reason I can't keep a straight face around "religious" people and their "time tested" beliefs. They can't even keep their own church buildings from being demoed. Why should I not think the same about their religious dogma?
Very sad and disappointingHistoric Euclid Avenue church will be razed, after vote by Cleveland Landmarks CommissionMichelle Jarboe McFee, The Plain Dealer By Michelle Jarboe McFee, The Plain Dealeron February 14, 2013 at 4:10 PM, updated February 14, 2013 at 4:55 PMCLEVELAND, Ohio -- A historic church at the edge of the Cleveland Clinic's main campus will be razed, after a Thursday vote by the Cleveland Landmarks Commission paved the way for demolition.The commission's decision ends a two-year quest by the Euclid Avenue Church of God to knock down its former home, which sits empty at 8601 Euclid Ave. http://www.cleveland.com/business/index.ssf/2013/02/historic_euclid_avenue_church.html#incart_river_default

OK, so not every building gets demolished when the owner (in this case a labor union) claims the building is beyond saving......http://planning.city.cleveland.oh.us/bza/bbs/agenda/2013/AGENDA03272013.pdfAgendaBOARD OF BUILDING STANDARDS AND BUILDING APPEALSRoom 514 – City HallWEDNESDAY, MARCH 27, 2013BUILDING: PUBLIC HEARING: 9:30A.M.Docket A-331-12 3600 Euclid Avenue WARD: 8(Jeffrey D.
