61, 63 and 67 Vine were sold recently and reader SP has just sent in this update with information on what currently in the works for the site and his opinion of the state of affairs that will occur with this change.
Post submitted by SP.
The row of shanty houses on Vine that were recently sold. The two leaning houses and the one that was on fire last year have all been boarded up and some men who were cleaning up the
property recently said that the structures would be torn down and 6 townhomes going up in their place. That only leaves 2 shanty houses to go. The residents of Vine are happy to welcome this change to what has been an eyesore for many years now. Our street will look nicer and the riff raff that hung out in these abandoned houses will hopefully be replaced by families both young and old. Sadly the brick house could not be saved but there are a lot of other structures in the area that have been restored in recent months and I hope that is enough to please the naysayers of development.
