Eyesore of the Week

Eyesore of the Week:
1423 Ada St., Lansing


Peeling paint and graffiti-covered plywood at 1423 Ada St., Lansing are just the first impression. Located in the Baker Donora neighborhood in south Lansing, this eyesore sits next door to another red-tagged property. On the front porch are trash and construction debris. An Ingham County treasurer’s notice flaps in the wind.

This 1913, two-story home with 1,204 square feet of living space was likely an eye candy in its heyday. But since 2014 it has been a blight. Numerous citations for trash times and failing to register the property as a rental were issued. In 2019, the city red-tagged the building. 

City records show the Ingham County treasurer seized the property in a tax foreclosure in 2021. It was then sold to OLC Investments LLC of Muskegon for $8,000. 

A search of the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs database of businesses did not provide a match for either name in city records or the address associated with that name. City records also reveal the property taxes for 2022 have not been paid.
