After seeing an email notification yesterday about the pending demolition of 2522 Penn Ave N, one of two decrepit houses owned by local disinvestment specialist* Keith Reitman, I decided to stroll over to the corner of 26th and Penn for photographic evidence. Much to my pleasant surprise, a demolition has also been set for the other twin at 2520 Penn.
The latter is particularly impressive because 2522 has apparently already been purchased from the city. Currently it seems that 2520 is still owned by Reitman and perhaps a host of others as well. I'm hoping that the city does manage to hit Reitman with the demo fee in this case, instead of capitulating and buying him out at what could be an inflated price.

Keith Reitman is shown twice, once with his PO Box 11382, and another time with an address in south Minneapolis, 5732 Oliver Ave S.
After Reitman, we have:
1. Leonard Larson Jr. who has an address at 639 18th St E #223 in Minneapolis.
2. Virginia Peltier, 11810 53rd Ave N, Plymouth MN
3. Edna Anderson, 7216 Monardo Lane, Edina MN
5. Professional Systems of Mankato, Inc. 360 Pierce Ave #100, North Mankato MN

7. Midland Funding, c/o Midland Credit Management, 8875 Aero Dr #200, San Diego CA

9. Internal Revenue Service, Advisory UNit M/S 5900, 30 - 7th St E #1222, St. Paul MN
10. Leonard Larson, 4141 Standish Ave, Minneapolis MN
Some of these people may be innocuously connected to Reitman, if such a thing is possible. For instance, I have seen demolition orders posted on buildings that included notifications to Realtors who listed the property as long as two years prior to the raze order. Even so, the list of mortgage companies, creditors, and especially the IRS provides some rather interesting Reitman tidbits. Something tells me that even after the demolitions, there will still be some digging to do here.
*credit for the term "disinvestment specialist" goes to Eric Johnson, with thanks.
