As soon as Mother Nature takes its toll to the point of no return, any developers requesting demolition will say Clemens is too far gone, but maybe that's the sit-and-wait plan.

As much as the Clemens house is surrounded by redevelopment, I think the owners may be intentionally waiting for the perfect storm such that others assessing the compounding damage will relunctantly agree, thereby ensuring a go-ahead with the Preservation Board.
