Anderson News: Anderson Antique Mall Coming Down

The Herald Bulletin reported on this last week under Downtown landmark set for demolition:
"The former Anderson Antique Mall, at the intersection of 14th and Main streets, will be demolished after the city takes bids for the project in May. The Anderson Redevelopment Commission approved on Tuesday the legal notice required for advertising for demolition bids.

The three-story brick building was an antique mall until about two years ago, Municipal Development Director Michael Widing said. Before that, it was a furniture store called Model Home Stores.

The city bought the property in November 2007 for $44,000, Widing said, but plans haven’t been completed for its use after the building is demolished.

“We’re still working on putting that together,” he said."
That last paragraph surprised me. I remember seeing a plan at City Hall for converting the entire block to some sort of bus/train complex. That makes sense is one looks at the condition of Pelletrino's and The Caboose. These bars have been shut down since Rodney Cummings shut them down in his prosecution of O'Neal.
