Houses Coming Down on Ledgewood

Demo scheduled to start next week | September 5, 2008

Demolition of the homes along Ledgewood Avenue is slated to begin the week of September 8. The contract with Messer Construction was signed on Friday, Sept. 5, clearing the way for the start of development of the Hoff Academic Quad. Crews will begin removing trees and homes near Bellarmine Circle and move up the street toward Dana Avenue. The demolition will make way for construction of a new Williams College of Business and the Learning Commons. Nearly 60,000 yards of earth will be moved in the process. Much of that earth will be sent to Owls Nest Park in O'Byronville. Completion of the Hoff Academic Quad is slated for the fall of 2010.
