It’s fun to watch houses get completely rehabbed here in Alameda. on a major street like Central…almost every one sees what an owner chooses not to do, and when a fence goes up around it that means the city probably has taken over through the court process due to public hazards.
This one at 1617 Central has had a long fight (I easily found records on the internet back to 1985), now won by the city, with loads of code enforcement issues on/in it. The new owner (a woman with some expertise as a rehabber) has the crew digging in and digging out immediately.
This is one to slow down (or park) on Central, just west of Grand, to at least see the outside as it moves onward.
If it is in Alameda, I will consider working it. This town is what I know best! Call to ask questions! Maybe we should meet.
