The businesses located on southeast corner of 79th and 3rd are packing up due to the building's coming demolition, according to some key intel from commenters Brooke and J.L. The demo plans, also confirmed by a sullen looking onsite source -- "yeah man, building's coming down." -- will get underway in January.
According to J.L. the coffee shop on the street level had a shutdown party last night and "the shoe repair guy is now leaving at the end of Dec. instead of January, having accepted a payment of $20,000 to bug out early."
No word yet on the corner's post-demo plans. Please hit the comments if you have a clue about the site's future plans.
