Work has started at the Brewster-Douglass Projects to abate all the nasty materials so they can demolish these buildings.
That blue crane is the company doing the prep wok for the demolition, they are putting their signs on the towers.
You can see they have been working in some of the Douglass towers already, more than putting up signs anyway.
Over in the Brewsters, you can see the same activity.
Looks like they smashed some stuff over here.
Anybody hear any recent news about the Brewster-Wheeler Recreation Center ?
To anybody out there who is thinking right now that they should save the Douglass Towers and reuse them for new development, perhaps because of their architectural or historical significance – let me just remind you of the Jeffries Projects, and let us take a look a two of those towers in their new….hats ? They stuck a few architecture looking things on the top of them, basically. They still look like projects to me. I am not in favor of saving Brewster-Douglass, and it is PRIME real estate with amazing views of downtown and the upcoming hockey stadium entertainment district.
I will miss Brewster-Douglass though. Check back for updates as the demolition progresses, I’ve got front row seats.
