The old and decrepit Hotel Chellino is finally down, after rotting away for eons. It paves the way to replace the long-closed bridge behind City Hall. Apparently, the hotel's foundation is somehow related to the bridge foundation.
It looked like a grand old building and I'm sorry it couldn't be saved. It's a common thread I've whined about here in the past. We wait too long to step in, and by then, it's too late. Demolition is the only option.
Below is a photo of the Chellino back in 2021.
From what I read, the site will become riverside green space. I look forward to the finished product.
