The next phase of demolition at the Westminster Mall is tentatively set to begin at the end of October.
This second phase includes the demolition of the Dillard's, Montgomery Wards and main mall corridor buildings (except Sears and JC Penney).
A $339,250 contract with American Demolition (which is wrapping up the first phase of the demolition) will be considered by the Westminster Economic Development Authority on September 26.
If approved the plan is to start on the east side of the mall with the Dillard's building, then proceeding west along the main mall corridor. Then the Wards building will be demolished along with the north-south mall corridor.
Demolition is scheduled to be complete in the spring of 2012.
