Cherry Demolition crews are attacking portions of the Memorial Club Apartments at 904 Westcott St. this morning. A tipster tells Swamplot the section of apartments on the east side of Westcott have been vacant for a few weeks, and that ovens, washers, dryers, and other appliances were hauled off last week.
There are five 3-story structures on the east side of Westcott, where the demo is taking place, and another 4 on the west side of Westcott, which are still intact for now. Greystar bought the property early last year, and earlier this year announced plans to build a new complex called the Elan Memorial Park to replace it, in 2 phases: 292 apartments in one and 258 in the other. Renderings of the new development, designed by Meeks + Partners, show retail spaces on the ground floor of at least one of the structures:
