Demolition is nearly complete at the old Extra Foods building on Vernon and Hendryx. Crews were noisily dismantling the rear wall adjacent to New China Restaurant on Sunday afternoon in preparation for the construction of the Nelson Commons project.
Kootenay Co-op has now set up a webcam at nelsoncommons.ca so that interested parties who would like to follow the construction have the chance.
So far 36 of the units at Nelson Commons have sold, while 18 remain for sale. If everything goes according to plan, the units will be available in the summer of 2016.
The next stage of construction will involve excavating the space that will ultimately become underground parking and the foundation of the building.
