If you take a stroll around South Norwalk this weekend, you will notice a big difference across the street from the IMAX theater.
The demolition of the Norwalk Company building was completed on Wednesday and Thursday. The picture above is from my cell phone as I headed into the IMAX theater for the 7 pm showing of the new Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises” last night (Thursday).
Most people may not have paid much attention to the building which has been vacant for years, but the change is definitely noticeable. However, don’t get used to the wide open space as Spinnaker Real Estate Partners, LLC plans on building a mix of retail, restaurant, and residential space on the site. There was initially talk about saving the original facade, but it wasn’t feasible as the new construction plans would have required the builders to pick up and move the facade away from the street to make way for widening the sidewalk.
