"Cover Story" piece on 80 Grant Street, which has the dubious distinction of being Portland's worst apartment building. If ever there was a building that met the criteria spelled out in the city's rarely used, two-year-old disorderly house ordinance, which allows authorities to force a landlord to evict unruly tenants, this is it. But Michael Patterson, president of the Parkside Neighborhood Association, says the city's ordinance doesn't seem to help. Since last June, police have been called to 80 Grant Street 157 times, receiving at least 10 calls a month in 10 out of 11 months. City officials have implored the landlord to reform, but owner Paul Rheaume Jr. of Buxton denies there is a problem. He even denies that he owns the building, which is officially listed as property belonging to Wolf Property Management Inc. of Gorham.
