And Now A Little Demolition Scuttlebutt...

Stock photo and blog post by John Hoff

The following information arrived by email and, well, I really have no opinion about it. But it seemed both substantive and concerned with the municipal good, so I thought well, what the heck: I'll find a nice stock photo, add some links, and distribute this wonkish information just-that-quick.

Check it out...

5. Demolition of Three Structures (1900 & 2010 W Broadway, 2324 Lyndale Ave N):

Accept low responsible bid of Carl Bolander and Sons Company, $62,600, for demolition & site clearance (Also in W&M/Budget).

So they're knocking down a few Northside buildings. I can't quite figure out which buildings they are from Google streetview, but it seems like a couple of apartment buildings?

Also of note, the attached description of "TMS Construction" and their failures.

The 2324 Lyndale Ave building is almost certainly Wafana's.

2010 West Broadway is a small apartment building on the 'curve' area of Broadway. It's actually around the Logan Ave intersection. There used to also be the infamous ugly blue show shack that a certain someone falsely claimed part ownership to squirm his way onto the JACC Board, that shoe shack has been gone a few years now.

The apartment building is being torn down in order to make room for a much larger housing development. I believe it is the development written about here:

There are about 6 vacant lots on one side of the apartment building, and then the shoe shack vacant lot on the other side.

It's kitty-corner from Capri Theatre.
