Second JAMHI building demolished for parking lot

Heavy equipment knocked down the former Juneau Alliance for Mental Health Inc. building at the corner of Second and Franklin streets Wednesday. Demolition of the building and the former Colonial Apartments next door is the first step in construction of a city parking lot on the site. North Pacific Erectors was hired for the job, expected to cost about $500,000 including asbestos removal, said Mike Krieber, city project engineer for the city. He said the lot should be completed by the end of July.
