Crumbling south Toledo building awaiting repairs

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Just over a week ago, bricks fell from the side of a south Toledo building, almost hitting someone. The property manager said the problem would be fixed in a week, but neighbors say that hasn't happened.

Business owners in the area say the building is dangerous and is bringing the community down.

"I have customers that come in from all over the city and they look at this building that's falling apart, so what impression does that give for my business?" said Mike Scott.

Scott has been painting and refinishing antique wood at his shop on Arlington Avenue for 36 years.

"This is the main pathway for Bowsher, and kids…they walk underneath that," Scott said of the crumbling building.

When the bricks fell a week ago, witnesses say they nearly hit a kid walking by. After that incident, Toledo News Now contacted the property manager at Noneman Real Estate and he said the building would be fixed in a week. On Monday, nothing had changed.

Property manager Dennis Noneman said the crew he booked to make the repairs canceled on him. He says the repairs will now happen in 2-3 weeks.

"He's probably not going to fix it because from my understanding, the city has been trying to get something done for the whole time I've been complaining about the bricks," Scott said.

City officials say they've been back and forth with Noneman Real Estate since the spring. Scott says something needs to be done.

"Either fix the building or tear it down," he said.

He, along with others in the area, is concerned the rest of the building will also start to fall apart. Noneman says they're only planning to fix the area that's damaged, and will look at other areas to see if work needs to be done.
