Why is this building still standing?
Abandoned homes-level them
Abandoned Buildings level them or convert them to low income housing.
That's what they are doing in the town of Fonda, NY which I drive through 2-4 times a day. Most of these homes are falling in on themselves. They are slowly tearing them down and either rebuilding or offering the house next to the abandoned property to buy the abandoned lot at a lower cost.
The new property owner gains home value while paying more taxes.
