When we last checked in on 1148 and 1150 S. 15th St. back in August, new fencing had recently gone up, indicating the possibility that work would finally begin on the site after months of delays. Which was a good thing, because these blighted properties were bringing down an already kind of rough block.

We passed by this spot the other day, and discovered that things were different here indeed. Gone were the old homes, replaced by two new construction triplexes. It looks like the homes should be finished and occupied in just a couple of months.

From the north

Now if only some developers would tackle the vacant lots immediately to the south, this block could really get moving. Maybe someday soon…
