Demolition begins on Binghamton University properties in JC
Crews began the process of demolishing several old buildings near the Binghamton University Health Sciences Campus in Johnson City.
On Tuesday morning, Gorick Construction workers began demolishing a three-family home at 32 Park Street. Another neighboring residential structure was also to be removed.
The two houses were just south of a large industrial building that could be used by university manufacturing partners in the future.
Binghamton University President Harvey Stenger said there are plans to develop green spaces on the properties the school has acquired in the neighborhood in recent years.
The buildings on Main Street, Willow Street, Lewis Street and Jennison Avenue are to be demolished in the coming days.
The properties are located to the north and east of the university’s pharmacy and nursing school complexes on Corliss Avenue.
