Despite rising property values in Corktown and a fairly good sales market, some property owners have let their buildings wither and remain unused. "No more!" says the Detroit Land Bank, which recently posted two notices that they intend to take two Corktown properties away from the owners that have not maintained the buildings. If these owners don't do something about these blight violations the Land Bank can reclaim them and auction them off online. Now that would surely net them some positive income. So far they haven't had any Corktown properties to sell. These two properties are located in the heart of the neighborhood on Bagley. Anyone know more about them?
