Cleaning Up A Landmark (2582 Monroe)

March 22, 2021 Projects

18 81871 2582 Monroe Misc 4 115

For over a century, this small corner of the Old West End has been a neighborhood landmark.

For decades in the early 20th Century, the site was a gasoline filling station. Soon after the station closed in the 1970s, it became Sound Asylum Records, serving up the best in local and national records, cassettes, and CDs. Sadly, Sound Asylum also closed its doors in 2013 and the property was abandoned and tax foreclosed. This history has left the community with a lot. Good memories, yes. But also underground contamination that must now be cleaned up for 21st Century uses and future generations.

That's why the Land Bank is proud to be working with the City of Toledo to remediate the site. After remediation is completed, we look forward to re-opening marketing of the property and considering all uses that will contribute the long-term strength of the Old West End neighborhood and the Monroe Street corridor.

This page will serve as the comprehensive administrative record of our project work.
