Demolition is Underway

We are thrilled to announce that we have started the demolition process at the new Community Food Center thanks to our community and funding partners. Some of the highlights during this process include:

  • Preparation for a new layout of the building that will enhance operations and the participant experience
  • Installation of a mitigation system in the garage area that will hold our Foodmobiles
  • Removal of hanging power lines, ceiling tiles, and other elements that won’t be in the new design
  • Preservation of the 1922 Terrazzo floor and other elements that will be revitalized for the new layout

Once demolition is complete this spring, construction will begin! The first projects include updating the utilities to the site, and the flow of storm and sewer drainage.

  • Exterior "before" image of 1800 University Ave. W, a former furniture store and warehouse.
  • Mary McKeown and Adero Riser Cobb celebrate being in the demolition phase of this project.
  • Demolition is underway, removing walls and materials that won't be part of the new design.
  • Mary McKeown and Adero Riser Cobb celebrate a space being opened between the two buildings -- 1800 and 1790. The final design will have a passthrough space between the garage and the warehouse.
  • This is the empty space that will be converted into our garage for our Foodmobiles and constructed to have the Community Room.
  • Demolition is underway, and this will be the new location for our food market in the final design.
