Demolition starts on former Wilcor building

News

Demolition work for the downtown hospital project continues, this time at the intersection of Lafayette Street and Cornelia Street. The four story brick building, located at the corner of Lafayette and Cornelia, began coming down this morning.

The building had recently been the showroom facility for Wilcor International. While initially opposing the plans for downtown hospital, due to its impact on their operation, Wilcor eventually settled with MVHS and moved their full operation to their warehouse facility in Schuyler.

A reminder, while demolition work continues on Lafayette, the street has been restricted to a single lane at times.
