Demolition begins at Westdale Mall

Posted: Updated:

Demolition is underway at Westdale Mall in Cedar Rapids. Thursday morning crews began knocking down the old Montgomery Ward building, which most recently housed Linn County offices following the 2008 flood. 

The demolition is part of a multi-million dollar redevelopment at the mall. All shops remain open now, however, just J. C. Penney and Younkers will remain after March 31, 2014. The rest of the mall will close then as the redevelopment continues.
