Beckley buildings demolished for CVS

Workers demolished several old building on Beckley at Illinois recently to make way for a CVS store.

Three commercial buildings and five houses were torn down to make way for the corner retail development.

One of the buildings was a stone warehouse built by H.H. Barnes in 1955. The developer agreed to deliver some of the stone from the warehouse to Beckley Club Estates neighbors, who are planning to use them in a project.

CVS also recently tore down several old buildings in Cockrell Hill.
