Demolition of the former McLarty Furniture building on Third Street in Sidney begins this week.

The site is now owned by the Marker Group, owners of the Sidney Pier Hotel, Seaport West and more. The building is slated to be redeveloped into a five-storey mixed residential and commercial structure.

Known as The Meridian Residences, 15 of its 24 units have already been sold, including the single street-level commercial unit.

Excavators will begin the demolition Thursday, May 21 and the Marker Group says once they receive their building permit from the municipality, construction will take 12 to 14 months.
