City of Tyler Demolishes Office Building

In Tyler today, the city tore down an office building damaged by a storm almost two years ago. The building, located at 436 South Broadway, was damaged by a falling tree. The city gave the property owner several months to make necessary repairs, then began the demolition process. After several setbacks in court, the city finally reached an arrangement a month ago to destroy the building. The taxing entities plan to eventually sell the property to pay the back taxes.
