Historic Downtown Cedar Rapids Buildings To Be Demolished
After some delays held up their demolition due to their historic significance in the community, three downtown buildings will soon come down to make way for a new office for Skogman Realty.
Sub City and Albert Auto both closed on First Avenue late last year and the Bever Building next door at the corner of 1st Ave. and 5th Street will join them in being torn down soon.
No timetable is set for the demolition, and reports say Skogman is working with historic preservation groups to determine that.
All three buildings were placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2015.
