The Columbus Landmarks Foundation has released its sixth-annual list of endangered buildings. 

Jim Letizia reports.

Included on the list of nine structures is a 19th century home on South Washington Avenue near Topiary Park. It's future is threatened by construction of an apartment complex. The Grant-Oak Apartment building on South Grant Avenue is being demolished for another apartment complex. Other buildings on the list include the Columbus Maennerchor structure, a mansion on West 5th Avenue in Marble Cliff, The Greater Columbus Antique Mall on South High Street, Holy Rosary Church on East Main Street, Macon Lounge on North 20th Street, the Ohio Baptist General Association Buildings on Parkwood Avenue and the Salesian Boys and Girls Club on South 6th Street.The organization hopes the list will help buy time to come up with alternatives to preserve the buildings it says are part of the city's architectural heritage.
