Demolition starts on old Bank of Commerce building

Since some of you are bound be asking about this (and because we really like pictures of buildings being torn down) here's what's was going on Monday afternoon at Northgate Mile and Holmes Avenue. The old Bank of Commerce building is being cleared away to make room for Matt Cardon's new drive-through car wash. Cardon sold his old operation at 2010 First Street in 2013 to Trent Birch, and it is now called New Image Car Wash.


  1. A shame to see this classic building go, but in the name of progress, it's understandable. I've seen this building at that corner for as long as I can remember, and I'm 48, so that makes it a LONG time.

  2. The worst is when old buildings are replaced with something boring, cheap and ugly. Hopefully that's not the case here. Thanks for posting this photo!
