The demolition of the two-story building located at 90 North High Street officially began work today, starting with the carport cover structure in the back facing Pearl Alley. The demolition is a part of the larger Madison renovation project next door by The Day Companies, which will feature new exterior windows and outdoor cafe and retail space in place of the demolished building.

“We plan to enhance the entire streetscape beyond the property,” said Project architect Chris Meyers from Meyers + Associates back in April of this year. “Some of it is about incorporating the city’s pedestrian guidelines and standards when it comes to the streetscape, as well as bringing back some of the pedestrian connectively to High and Pearl as a way to enliven the area.”

Once completed, The Madison will be home to new residences, office and ground-floor retail. The building is one of several in the area that is contributing to a rapid evolution of the area at Gay and High Streets.

Further down the road, a second phase of the development has been conceptualized by the Day Companies to potentially add a 12-story 132-room hotel on the surface parking lot next door.
