This past week, demolition crews made swift progress at the former Shelby’s building which had been sitting vacant for over a year. This demolition is the first step to, hopefully, make way for the twin tower 18th and Glenarm Condos. Here are a couple of photos showing the project site with only a dirt patch left from the former building.

Moving in closer, you can see that Shelby’s did not take up much of the entire lot. A fence is around the dirt patch but the parking lot remains open at this time.

On the permitting side, a Formal Site Development Plan was filed back in March, along with some right-of-way dedication permits in June, presumably for the recent demolition. With the uncertainty in the markets at the moment, it’s hard to say when this project will begin but we hope this demolition is a sign that things are still moving forward.
