Clemens House for Sale

by Michael R. Allen

A friend let me know that there is a for sale sign on the Clemens House directing potential buyers to call Eagle Realty.

This is interesting news given that the City Counselor’s office never re-filed the Building Division’s suit against the owners of the house, and a tipster told me that the case file had been relocated upon request to the Mayor’s office. The Counselor’s office had promised to re-file the case after giving the Clemens House’s owner, Blairmont Associates LC, 90 days from February 14, 2006 to sell the house. That deadline passed without comment from City Hall or the city’s daily paper, which had covered the matter earlier.

Well, better late than never, as the tortoise told the hare.
