The keys to the Sears building at the former Westminster Mall were delivered Wednesday, June 27, to the Westminster Economic Development Authority.
Demolition of the Sears Auto Center will be underway next week, followed by demolition on the main Sears building by mid-July.
The demolition and removal of material is expected to be complete by September.
WEDA now owns about 96 percent of the 105-acre site that was the Westminster Mall.
Confidential negotiations with a developer are moving forward positively.
