Zionsville officials announced they would demolish the building at 390 S. Main St., formerly owned by PNC Bank, at 9 a.m. July 28.
The vacant building will be torn down, and the lot will be resurfaced. Zionsville Locksmith & Safe is included in this demolition project.
Officials stated the demolition project is “a symbolic moment for the future of the gateway into Zionsville’s historic Brick Street.” Previously, Zionsville Mayor Emily Styron expressed a desire to transfigure the space in the short term into a parking lot. The space would at a later date be considered for other opportunities.
The demolition is also the first stage of the Gateway Development Project, which aims to revamp the entryway’s appearance.
“This is a visual symbol that we are moving forward with priorities to reinvent the gateway into our town,” Styron stated. “We will be engaging and activating the entire community and sharing the community’s vision with developers as we work together on plans for the future.”
Styron, Zionsville Deputy Mayor Julie Johns-Cole, Zionsville Town Council members and other community leaders will attend the demolition, according to a press release.
