City Begins Demolition of Mt. Pleasant Center

Two years ago, the city of Mt. Pleasant was able to buy the property for $1.

A few weeks ago, workers began to level all 21 buildings to open the Mt. Pleasant property up for developers.

One of the buildings is down, with work starting on the main administration building soon.

Careful work is being done to contain the asbestos inside.

The total demolition will take a few years and the city will begin to find out what the best way to use the property will be.

9&10 News' Eric Lloyd checked in on the progress and has more details.
