Save 115 13th Ave NE from demolition.

Let your voice be heard. Our neighborhood is currently being attacked by real estate investors who care more about profit than the history/fabric of a neighborhood. 115 13th Ave NE is a beautiful 1925 3/1 bungalow in great condition that 5-6 families tried to purchase when put on the market 10 months ago. Instead, 115 13th Ave NE was purchased by Rich St Pete IV, LLC, a corporation comprised of Chinese and Canadian investors, for $35K above asking price in April of 2016 with the intent to demolish the house. Since the purchase date, the house has been vacant with little to no maintenance on the interior or exterior. I know this house is in extremely great condition with no termite, mold or structural issues. Mulitple people have offered to purchase this house to save it from destruction after confirmation from the property manager that it will be torn down this year. 

Since Florida property laws side towards the owner majority of the time, attempts to try to make this house historic have proved unscuccesful. So please, if you would like to see a property in this beautiful neighborhood saved, consider signing this petition. I am not sure if this petition will accomplish anything when presented to the city but we can try. And if this petition does help save the house, maybe this can be a solution to save other properties in this and other neighborhoods as well. Thank you for your consideration.
