I have been monitoring the progress of the demolition of the old Sears building at 754 S State Street in downtown Salt Lake City.
This clip is of the last section to be demolished, the part of the building adjacent to State Street. I filmed it on the morning of Friday, November 18, 2022. This was before the taco carts were set up and they were not present when this event happened.
I have a few other posts about the Sears building.
- The history of the Sears building, including information about the murals. Read that post here.
- A group of us had permission to enter the old Sears building during the asbestos remediation (before demolition) to look for the old murals and see if they were still there, and if they were if they could be preserved. They had been removed at least 30 years ago, so no murals were damaged during the current demolition process. Read about that post here.
