The former location of the Trail Dust Steak House was demolished on April 14, 2010. You can view a short video of the demolition below.
The property, vacant since 2007, sits on the northeast side of the mall location. Westminster Economic Development Authority acquired the property in early 2010 for $727,103.
The building owners, L.A.I.P.C.A. Farmers, LLC, approached the city about acquiring their property in early 2009. The owners agreed to sell the property for $6.50 per square foot, which is favorably priced for a 2.57-acre pad site with highway visibility.
Alpine Demolition was selected to do the demolition with a low bid of $38,313. Alpine Demolition diverted 80 percent of the demolished materials from the waste stream. Alpine crushed the majority of the concrete at the site for reuse and salvaged recyclable metals such as copper, steel, aluminum and brass. The wooden structure was ground into mulch.
