The long-abandoned California Craft and Floral building on Alma Street, near Forest Avenue, is abandoned no longer. This week, a major portion of the dilapidated building at 657 Alma St., was reduced to rubble by a construction crew from Redwood City-based W. F. Butler Construction, Inc.
The company is demolishing the gray structure to make way for a new, two-story office building, which would house about 10 offices, according to Michael V. Butner, the company's superintendent.
Butner said his company would build the foundation for the new office building, including bathrooms, a lobby and an elevator, while the actual offices would be constructed later. The project is expected to take about 10 months to complete.
The new building will also come with a new address: 101 Forest Ave.
