Work continues on downtown Santa Rosa’s Museum on the Square project, a renovation that promises to transform a bunker-like, five-story former telephone switching facility on the edge of Courthouse Square into a modern office building and wine museum.
On Tuesday, demolition crews overseen by Chris Hammond, Inc., of Richmond hoisted nine concrete panels nine inches thick and weighing 20,000–22,000 pounds each, creating a spectacle for those in the city’s downtown Transit Mall.
The panels are being cut in the walls with diamond-tipped saws to add daylight to the formerly windowless telephone switching building. Hugh Futrell Corp. is the project owner, and TLCD Architecture is the designer as well as a future building tenant.
