  • I just returned from the site…and it looks like they are just breaking up the surface concrete. The contractors on the site are installing plumbing/water lines…and are not with the demolition company. With the permission of the contractors on the site, someone with me was able to look into one of the apartments and there is beautiful oak flooring still inside the apartments waiting to be reclaimed!

  • ^Lynn, is there any chance that the flooring (among TONS of other items there) will be up for salvage/the owner will get his head out of his *ss? Or is it still a lost cause?

  • “Breaking Apartments” — very funny!
