Then & Now

Whoa. The concrete semi-building that has graced Smelter Avenue between 2Js and the Twilite Center has been demolished.

I think when it was built – back in 2006ish – it was going to be the site of Boston’s restaurant, which instead built on 7th Street South off of 10th Avenue South.

So there it sat for more than a decade, just a hunka hunka concrete.

When I drove by today, I asked a couple of guys who were working on smoothing out the dirt if they knew anything about what might be built there.

They said as far as they know, there are no plans – the owner of the land just wanted the semi-building gone.
