It turns out July 20 was actually the EXPIRATION DATE FOR APPEALS OF THE PENDING DEMOLITION. Just because that date has passed doesn't mean a backhoe shows up the next day in a pissed-off frame of mind. There is, after all, coffee to be consumed and gotta put some new stickers on the hardhat and all THAT. But, seriously, word is that once some contractor has the demolition order, they usually have so many OTHER "demo orders" that it takes 2 or 3 weeks to get it on their schedule.
The latest "best guess" is a lovely fall demolition, with the yellow color of the backhoe matching NoMi's spectacular autumn foilage, ahhhh.
