The Mercantile will be a seven story multifamily apartment building.  The demolition phase has begun in the month of October.  The original building, the Cooperative Mercantile Company, is an unreinforced masonry structure.  The demolition team has been working to preserve the existing brick façade, which will be incorporated into the new design.
