TD Bank demolition begins

 In News

Proponents of the Creemore Village Green project have secured a demolition permit for the TD Bank.
Work began on the interior of the Mill Street building late last week and continues this week. It will take another two weeks to completely demolish the building.
The contract was awarded to Clearview based Kostick Demolition.
“They’ll be working inside the building for a few days, to demolish that, and then the exterior starts to come down in the second week,” said Creemore Community Foundation director Stuart Lazier.
He said crews are recycling everything they can.
Project manager Abbey Scott said they are starting with the metal and then moving to wood and carpeting, before starting on the shell. Hydro is being shut off Friday.
The community will start to see the building come down next week. Scott said it will take a week for the building to come down and another week to 10 days to fully clean up the site and finish the job.
Readers have been inquiring about the safe but it is not a freestanding structure that can be preserved. It is made of concrete, built in to the structure, and it will be demolished with the bank. She said a crane is needed to remove the safe’s metal door, which is destined for recycling.
