Fountain Park, Early July 2018

Fountain Park is such a beautiful little neighborhood, directly north of the Central West End, but possessing the exact same housing stock of its more wealthy neighborhood to the south.

Update: The building below continues to deteriorate as of April 2018.

There are well preserved buildings, and then there are complete disasters such as this unique building below, which conforms to the gentle curve of the elliptical park from which the neighborhood gets its name.

What is the neighborhood’s future? Probably largely it rests on what the financial markets desire it to be, as the city’s government has no plan.

    I will never forgive Titsworth Properties (whoever they are) for landbanking that corner building and failing to do anything with it. It’s easily one of the most beautiful structures in North City and it may have to be just torn down when all is said and done. What would it even cost to rehab a building like that? $3 million? $5 million? I’d do it if I could.

      It would be extremely expensive. And yes, I would jump at the opportunity if I had the money, as well.
