If you haven’t driven or strolled down L Street between 5th and 7th lately, this is the new view taking shape. The Macy’s men’s store and the north section of 515 L Street is being demolished. This week with the help of skid steer rental in Seattle a temporary soil shoring wall on the south side of the site along L Street is going up. Debris is being sorted and hauled off for recycling and one of the largest excavators on the West Coast can be seen in action (used excavator for sale was also assisting). Time to see the arena site up close via these photos taken by the City of Sacramento.
As evident by the sorted piles of debris within the mall rotunda, being inside the structure is an odd experience. Pedestrians and shops are replaced by tidy piles of leftover demolition material, the majority of which are being recycled and to be used in the new structure.
