OVERLAND PARK, KS (PRWEB) — Demolition has officially begun at 95th and Metcalf near downtown Overland Park.
Crews have spent the last couple of months clearing out the inside of the building in preparation for demolition, including removing and recycling wiring, metal framework and lightbulbs. Whenever appropriate, Shamrock used services like LampTracker, which helped us dispose of the fluorescent lights in an environmentally-safe manner. With the demolition now officially underway, Greg Bair Track Hoe Service, Inc. is preparing the iconic steeples for safe removal and donation to the Johnson County Museum.
“We appreciate the historical significance of this property and want to help preserve a part of that nostalgia for the community,”
says Tom Sullivan, COO, and spokesperson for Shamrock.
The steeples will be removed and transported tomorrow morning, February 2, 2019. Demolition of the remaining buildings is expected to take approximately two months to complete.
Formerly known as the French Market, Shamrock purchased the property in July 2018 to become an extension of its existing corporate headquarters across the street, at 9300 Metcalf Avenue. With the expansion comes the promise of 1,000 jobs in the next three to five years.
