City of Montgomery works to finish demolitions on Maxwell Boulevard

The city of Montgomery continues to make way for new developments on Maxwell Boulevard by demolishing unoccupied, city-owned buildings.

Crews on Friday were demolishing a building that Deputy Mayor Jeff Downes said was a potential safety hazard.

?Any unoccupied building that is in poor shape like that, we plan to demolish,? Downes said.

Last week, the city demolished the old Land and Sea building and earlier tore down an old building at Maxwell Boulevard and Whitman Street.

The city is in negotiations to bring in a developer for those locations, and the city?s general strategy along Maxwell Boulevard is to try to meet the demand for residential housing, Downes said.

Friday?s demolition is the last of the unoccupied, city-owned buildings along Maxwell that were in ?deplorable? condition, Downes said.
