QUINCY — Beck Properties has begun the demolition of the property at 3000 Broadway.

The former China Inn sits on a 9,600 square foot lot. Trevor Beck is the agent and president of Beck Properties, Inc., of Loraine, which bought the property at 3000 Broadway for $190,000 from Ruth and Connie Liu of Quincy on Dec. 9, according to property tax documents filed in the Adams County Recorder’s Office.

Beck also is in negotiations with Spencer Schelp, agent for Quincy 330 LLC, which bought the neighboring former Dollar General building at 330 N. 30th in May. Beck expects to close on that property, a 20,300 square foot lot with 25 parking spots, this month.

Beck asked for a due diligence period to check for clearances by the Environmental Protection Association. Before the China Inn, a gas station sat on the southeast corner of 30th and Broadway more than 50 years ago.
