According to an anonymous source working closely on the Genesee Brewery project, demolition of the infamous Cataract Brewhouse is scheduled to begin on Monday, June 18…
The demolition permit was officially signed on May 21 by the City’s Director of Planning & Zoning. The plan is to knock the walls of the structure inward using bucket excavators and then grind up the rubble. Dust to dust I guess.
So if you’re an artist, photographer, lover of old buildings or whatever, mark the date on your calendar. This will be one to remember (or to forget). I’m told Crystal Pix, Inc. (Fairport, NY) already has time-lapse cameras set up around the building and will be photo documenting the demolition from start to finish.
For me, this will be my “Black Monday.” I’ll be in seclusion.
