Westdale Demolition Begins
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- It's the beginning of the end for Westdale Mall as Cedar Rapids has known it for decades. The struggling complex is set to undergo a major renovation and overhaul. Thursday morning, a very visible part of the change got underway.
Crews began tearing down the old site of Montgomery Ward. It is the first phase of demolition that will continue for months as developers construct an entirely new shopping center that focuses less on the enclosed shopping design.
Current tenants will have to leave their location in a matter of weeks as the demolitions continue.
