Demolition at 212 6th Street Northwest

"The Starr Hill neighborhood's revitalization (began) with a bang Friday morning as bull dozers tore into the side of a house on Sixth Street, ripping down a dilapidated, sagging structure to make way for a new, sound one. The demolition of the house at 212 Sixth Street and another at 205 Fifth Street Northwest in the historic Charlottesville neighborhood near West Main Street also marks the first phase of a project aimed at increasing middle-class homeownership in the city" (Kimberly O'Brien, The Daily Progress, December 20, 1997).
