Mr. Fries, who was convicted of armed robbery in 1989 and was subsequently denied a Maryland law license, has been sued multiple times for lead paint and housing code violations, since 1993. The city has also filed multiple foreclosure and receiver lawsuits against his various properties, including 112 N Carrollton Street in May of this year.
History Note: In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, 1209 W Fayette was the home and office of Dr. JD Norris, an 1878 graduate of the University of Maryland School of Medicine. He also worked for the Baltimore City Health Department and was a member of the Maryland National Guard.
This home has been empty for some time — and it’s become a nuisance and an eyesore for the neighbors. The owners have refused to fix the issues with the home. Hopefully it will be put into receivership, as this is the only blighted vacant in this development.
