This Week in Demolition: The Heights loses a Theater

Welcome back to another Demolition Report. This time I’m trying a new format in which I compile the entire week into one post. Let me know what you think in the comments!

This week we see a large number of older houses on the South side being purchased by individuals. As well we take a look at the single commercial demolition from the week.

The former Stude Theater will be torn down and replaced by another big white building with no windows.. huh. Photo Credit: Patrick Feller / CC 2.0
