Grand Theatre Demolition Begins

posted by EJD1984 on December 2, 2003 at 2:10 pm

BALTIMORE, MD — The original plans for Baltimore’s Regional Library were to include the structure & facade of the Grand Theatre.

However two years ago, the architects & engineers inspected the theater and found that, due to extensive water damage, the supporting structure is too far gone (and costly) to be saved. I recently heard from the local merchants association that the marquee, box office, and some internal fixtures are going to be saved for some future use.

The fence around the block went up last week and the demolition is scheduled to start Dec 01 2003 :–(

Thats sad :(. Any updates on the construction? Maybe they could rebuild one at another location if they have the blueprints. We already have half done since we are keeping the marquee, box office, and some internal fixtures.
