Interesting to note that the city has filed for the condemnation of five Rochkind-owned properties on W. Saratoga Street. Besides the properties in the 900 block of W. Saratoga Street, a Rochkind controlled company also owns 1127 W. Saratoga Street. This property is on the list of outstanding lead paint violations issued by the Baltimore City Health Department.
We’re hoping the city will follow up and condemn more of his blighted lead paint-filled properties, and get them out of the hands of this slumlord.We suggest starting with 1003 and 1005 S. Carey Street, as we’ve written about these properties in this blog, and they’re also owned by Rochkind-controlled LLCs.
We wish our city attorneys the best of luck with these cases!
