A reader whose office faces the old Sheraton-Lincoln Hotel at 711 Polk St. downtown reports that demolition work on the former Beatles hangout is now “in full swing”:
They are taking down the building literally floor by floor. So far they have removed all the utilities on the roof and the entire top floor. Seems like a very labor intensive project. I plan to take a picture everyday and make a time lapse video. Can watch it in reverse and pretend they are revitalizing southern downtown!
