LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A failed affordable housing project in New Albany, Ind. has fallen to the wrecking ball.
The city has finished the demolition of Linden Meadows. The project was created eight years ago when 17 homes were relocated to make way for the expansion of Floyd Memorial Hospital.
A lawsuit delayed the project, and then the non-profit corporation behind Linden Meadows went bankrupt. The homes had been sitting unoccupied ever since.
New Albany Building Commissioner David Brewer says, "We no longer have to worry about this area in the city. We hope in the future that we've got an area here that potentially can be redeveloped for residential purposes or even potentially a recreational greenspace type of purpose. The options are open at this point."
The city of New Albany spent about $40,000 to tear down the homes.
