Demolition of Old Lichtenstein Building Continues Downtown

Posted: Updated:

Demolition of the old Lichtenstein building downtown continued Friday, and a 3News photographer caught some amazing footage at it was happening.

Kiii News Photographer Chris Ambriz got onboard a construction cherry picker and was hoisted more than 60 feet in the air to see the former downtown icon being demolished from the inside out.

Contractors removed the roof earlier this week and began the process of removing the interior before attacking the walls. They say they are actually ahead of schedule on the demolition and may start laying foundations for a new high rise by mid-December.
