Homes demolished on park point

Park Point homes demolished

Seven homes on Duluth's Park Point have been sold and demolished.

If you’ve driven out onto Duluth’s Park Point recently, you may have noticed some visible changes. Several homes have been demolished and there are now sprawling open lots in their place.

An article in the Duluth News Tribune explains that a member of one of the wealthiest families in the united states, a woman named Kathy Cargill, bought the homes well above market value.

The DNT article also points out concerns of nearby residents over what’s going to be built there and what might happen to their property taxes. There’s no word yet on what’s planned for the now-empty lots. Nearly 2,500 people live on park point.
