Abandoned apartment tower in East Cleveland could cost $2 million to demolish

There are thousands of vacant properties across Northeast Ohio. 

And we have a story now of one of the bigger ones, a 13-story, 254 -unit residential building, once called Huron Place Apartments. The building has been abandoned for about two years and has been looted by scavengers. 

Making matters even  worse: it sits just down the block from an East Cleveland middle school.

And, this should probably be no surprise, the  county officials identify its absentee owner as one of their  "Dirty dozen". A listing of top tax delinquents.
