STEVENS POINT, Wis (WSAU) The demolition of the CenterPoint Marketplace Mall in Stevens Point could begin as early next week. WSAW-TV reports power and utilities have now been turned off and the property is ready to be leveled.
The city will open bids for the demolition work on August 14. Bids are due no later than tomorrow. Demolition work could start the day after a company is chosen.
The city decided to tear down the entire mall, saying that would be less expensive than trying to save part of the main building for future retail space. The west wing will become the new downtown campus for MidState Technical College. And once the mall is torn down, Third Street will be extended across the mall property.
