Last week I and photographer Amy Voigt did a story about the rapidly deteriorating conditions in Riviera Maia, a 503-unit apartment complex in West Toledo (Jackman and Laskey roads).

It wasn't long ago that Riviera Maia was almost a showplace for apartment living. To prove that, here's the spread that The Blade's Home section did on Riviera Maia in 201o.
