A portion of a North Main Street building, now owned by the University of Findlay, was recently demolished to make way for green space and parking.
Ohio Conveyor & Supply Inc. had occupied 1310 N. Main St. The rear of the structure was removed, and materials such as brick, concrete block and steel were recycled.
The University intends to create about a dozen parking spaces for cars, and 14 for buses to accommodate Koehler Fitness and Recreation Complex, which is located just to the south. The additional parking will also help alleviate traffic issues during large events.
The old building will be painted to match the Koehler Center, and will be used for Physical Plant and campus security storage. It will be referred to as the Swing Street Storage Building.
“It’s premium storage we’ve needed for a long time,” said Myreon Cobb, Physical Plant director.
The University also plans to pave and install lighting on Swing Avenue between the old building and the athletic center.
