Demolition of the former Los Alamos Apartments is expected to get underway soon. The contractor, Coronado Wrecking, has begun mobilizing and staging at the site this week. Four of the five buildings on the western side of the site with addresses 1305, 1175, 1075 and 1013 will be demolished. Building 939, as well as the adjacent parking lot immediately to the west, will remain for continued occupation and use. The other four buildings slated for demolition are unoccupied. The use, access and safety of the residents in building 939 will be protected with temporary fencing that will isolate the demolition operations.
The first activity, asbestos abatement, is expected to start in early November. This portion of the project must be accomplished using certified contractors who are required to prevent any airborne release through redundant measures. These activities should cause little disruption and be fairly transparent to the general public. Air monitoring stations will operate during abatement as a safety precaution, but no air quality issues are anticipated. The site will be fenced for safety and security and work will be contained within this area.
When actual demolition begins in December, motorists traveling on Central Avenue may see large equipment working and subsequently will hear noise typically associated with any demolition project.
