One of Covington's Most Blighted Properties Razed

A building that has vacant and blighted on East Eighth Street in Covington for more than a decade has been partially razed.

The former multi-family, on the northside of the block between Scott Boulevard and Greenup Street, was mostly a pile of rubble Sunday.

In 2002, Cincinnati CityBeat featured the property as its "blight of the week". The owner at that time, according to the alternative weekly newspaper, had planned to move his office there.

Eleven years later, nothing moved had moved there and now the property is mostly gone.

In October 2011, the property was put up for auction on eBay with a starting bid of $5,500. It was described at the time as a 6-unit apartment building.
