Simm's Building To Be Demolished Next Week

It's going to take a while for West Siders to get used to this one.

The Simm's Building on Simm's Corner will be demolished starting next Wednesday.

Some of the material of the iconic glass-fronted factory will be processed and re-used as clean fill on the site, while the remaining debris will be hauled away. The entire process should take about 10 weeks.

Traffic isn't expected to be effected although the company has said they will let us know if that changes. No word on what specifically will be done with the site in the future.  The company was founded here in 1866.
