Redevelopment on Schedule for Former YMCA Site


Originally published by the Pensacola News Journal Staff Reports:

"Fred Gunther — who along with his brother, Brad Myers, intends to revitalize the site into a mixed-use development called Galveztown — said because of the building’s proximity to schools and churches, the number of days suitable for contractor Maverick Demolition each week is limited.

"Maverick Demolition is working very hard to minimize the impact of the demolition on our neighbors," Gunther said in an email. "It is a big building, and so far, most of the work has occurred each Saturday. As a result, the demolition process is going to take longer than it normally would, but everything is running on schedule. Within the next few weeks, you are going to see a total transformation of the site.""
