Brdaric was the lowest of 14 bids opened Tuesday morning in Council Chambers, 4th floor City Hall. Brdaric bid was $419,000 to take down the former hotel that was built in 1897 and opened in 1898.
“All you have to do is walk through it and you will see why it has to come down,” said John Brdaric, owner of the company.
Brdaric said it will take about 30 days to take the building down and another month to remove the debris. Butch Frati, the city’s director of operations, said it will take a couple weeks to certify the bid and demolition could begin within four weeks.
The building is located at the corner of West Market and North River streets.
