Riverwalk Plaza Hotel Demolition – December 12th, 2012

I pulled over to shoot some footage of the Riverwalk Plaza Hotel demolition in Downtown Jackson. MI. The north side of the former Riverwalk Plaza Hotel was being torn down piece by piece.

“The county had budgeted $1.5 million for the demolition contract and $1.75 million for the entire project.

Jackson County Administrator Michael Overton said the selling price has not been set. But, a request for qualifications has been sent to Realtor associations.” -Jackson Citizen Patriot
