For several years now JPS has accumulated the majority of 5 blocks off of South Main, including the 4 blocks bounded by Cannon, Crawford, Terrell and S. Main and the block Terrell, Crawford, Bryan and Dashwood. Part of my reason for starting this thread is to discuss frustration with JPS for letting the historic buildings deteriorate and valuable land go unused or developed, especially as the South Main Street neighborhood continues to explode with activity and development. What does the hospital district plan to do with this land, especially since it is rather disconnected from the rest of the hospital's main campus? The use of public dollars does not seem prudent.
A few of the buildings on these properties,
Old American Laundry building, built 1939 per TAD.
And more notably is the Sealy Building/Octavia Apartments, dating to 1916 and listed on the NRHP.
