Time is up for Sargent Avenue's Hood Block
If you've driven past the intersection of Sargent and Langside in the past eight months, you've no doubt noticed the ca. 1904 Hood Block. It was nearing the completion of extensive renovations in the summer of 2014 when the sidewalk out front collapsed, taking part of the facade with it.
The building will be demolished early next week.
