Old Oroweat Bakery Outlet building soon to be demolished

The longtime home of the Oroweat Bakery Outlet is coming another step closer to its appointment with a demolition crew, according to a project representative.

The building at 7009 Greenwood Ave. N. never was the prettiest of neighborhood architectural gems, but since the closure of the bakery at the end of last year, its walls have become an attractive magnet for taggers and handbill posters.

It’s now surrounded by a chainlink fence aimed at keeping them out.

Large trees fronting the street will be trimmed before the building is demolished.

Wednesday evening, we came across a group of people standing outside the building, including Attorney Mindy L. DeYoung, of Riddell Williams P.S., who is representing the owners.

DeYoung couldn’t be specific on the timing of the demolition, but said before that can happen, tree trimmers need to come out to cut back branches on the sidewalk trees which are now touching the building.

The property is part of the same Neighborhood Commerical zoning corridor as the nearby Fini Condos and the Greentree Condos, but DeYoung couldn’t say what will eventually be built.
