The beautiful, old building on the corner of Lawrence and Clark recently surrounded in scaffolding looks to be meeting a sad fate... demolition. According to the building permit seen on the scaffolding, the building at 1508 W. Lawrence will be demolished. Maybe one of the residents of "Rainbo Village" that finally closed on their properties moved in may have heard something in regards to what is planned for this corner.

Update: It is likely the demolition permit is only for the already demolished portion of the building that is next to the Crafty Beaver. As the demolition permit states, it for a commercial building and the main part of the building is mixed use with retail on the first floor and residential on the second and third floors. Hopefully this building will be restored to its former beauty.
