Demolition Over; Lancaster PA Convention Center Full Steam Ahead

The demolition phase has been completed for the Lancaster, PA Convention Center.  The hodge-podge of additions behind the historic Watt & Shand facade, which has been preserved to be included in the new Center, are now nothing but a memory.

The buildings behind and next to the former Watt & Shand department store are gone as well.

The gigantic cranes that have been instrumental in the demolition, are now  lifting huge concrete footers and sections of preformed foundation wall into place.
