Developer Recycles Salvation Army Building
The former Salvation Army building on Arsenal Street is coming down. Piece by piece.
It will be replaced by a new building for the AmeriCU credit union.
The metal building was built in 1989 by local contractor Lunco Corporation and is being dismantled by the same company for possible use somewhere else.
Developer Michael Lundy says it would have been easy to demolish the building, but with construction materials getting more expensive, salvaging it is a good idea.
Lundy says his crew is not only saving the structure itself, but also the glass windows in front, bricks and the sprinkler system.
The old building should be dismantled by early August. Construction of the AmeriCU building will begin soon after and should be complete in 2013.
