Downtown’s worst eyesore – on its way out?

StrandThe City is taking firm action with the repulsive Strand “building” at 1100 Cleveland Street. The Strand had been previously labeled an abandoned building and the owner has been fined accordingly. But now the City has gone a step further and labeled it an unsafe structure.
