QUINCY — The owner of WCU Tower Corporation says demolition to the parking garage at 5th and Jersey will begin soon, once the permitting paperwork gets through the City of Quincy.

Lynn Wiewel of WCU Tower Corp. said the company accepted the low bid from a St. Louis demolition company. Architechnics, whose offices are located in the Western Catholic Union building, will coordinate the project.

“The (demolition) bid was significantly lower than any of the local bids,” Wiewel said.

She said, once approved, the plan is to take down the top two decks of the garage, but repair the underground parking section, this year. Then, next year, add canopies to create more street-level parking.
