Demolition of Spring Street Landing building to begin Jan. 21

A total of 28 construction dumpsters will be needed to haul away the charred remains of Downriggers restaurant and the rest of the former Spring Street Landing building, as part of the much-anticipated demolition of the building destroyed by fire on Aug 17.

Port of Friday Harbor Executive Director Marilyn O'Connor expects demolition to start Tuesday, Jan. 21 and be completed within three weeks. The amount of the contract, with MEM Excavation of Friday Harbor, is roughly $82,000, O'Connor said.

O'Connor also said that the insurance settlement for replacement of the building has not yet been reached and she gave no date for completion.

The new Spring Street Landing building design will be reviewed at the Jan. 22 meeting of the Port of Friday Harbor Commission, beginning at 4 p.m., at the San Juan Island Yacht Club.
