Expat found this sad house signifying the changes in this neighborhood: This historic house in the shadow of Mercy Hospital was barricaded at least 2 years ago, and it's obviously doomed, as so many Hillcrest properties are. The two huge hospitals are ravenous for parking space, medical office space, consulting room space, research space, and on and on. The puzzle with this one is, why don't they GET ON WITH IT? We're guessing that they're planning to uproot it and move it somewhere else, as was done to a much less attractive house on Third Avenue whose plot the medical types lusted after. Anybody know any more?
