Des Moines, Iowa saves $4 million on downtown ramp demolition
The Des Moines Register

City staff said the 63 percent reduction — $2.25 million compared with the city engineer’s estimate of $6.1 million — comes from the ability to recycle and repurpose concrete and other materials in the current garage.

Demolition looks increasingly likely for Lake Bluff, Illinois' iconic Blair House
Chicago Tribune
Attempts to find a buyer in time to stop the clock on demolition of Lake Bluff's historic Blair House appear to have been unsuccessful. In December 2014, representatives of the Blair family filed a request with the village to tear down the modernist home at 925 Sheridan Road, according to previous Chicago Tribune reports. In January, the Historic Preservation Commission of Lake Bluff applied for landmark status for the property. The application delayed the demolition process until Aug. 20, but ultimately cannot stop the wrecking ball.
