FOUR DEMOLITION RIGS, NO WAITING
March 11th, 2012 by Clark Humphrey

The parking garage on Second Avenue between Stewart and Virginia was completely demolished in two days.

In order to minimize traffic disruption, the whole job was scheduled for a single weekend. Even then, at least one lane of Second was open to traffic at all times.

Four jackhammer and shovel rigs converged on the site; first knocking down the front walls, then moving in for the rest.

By late Sunday afternoon, all that was left was rubble and some old painted signage revealed on the side of the building next door.

    No before pix? Wasn’t there a bike shop here prior to the teardown, or have I misplaced them?

    Yes, Bicycle Pull Apart had its second location there. Previously, the storefront space in the garage building was home to the first version of the Form: Space Atelier gallery.
