The walls are finally tumbling down on four properties along Lawrence and Bell avenues.
Demolition began last week on 509 through 515 Lawrence Ave., a stretch that includes two buildings and four storefronts, but drivers through Jacksonville’s main business district might not notice.
This week, demolition continues on the rear of the building. Within the next week to 10 days, he said, the front portions of the buildings will be pulled down.
That’s right, pulled down. The project involves using a piece of equipment that has an 80-foot arm to pull down the storefronts from behind, meaning that the demolition will have little impact on Lawrence Avenue.
