WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A Wilmington eyesore is being cleaned up. Crews today began tearing down the old Almont Shipping Warehouse at Front and Nutt Streets.
The city hired a contractor to demolish the building next to the Convention Center after condemning it in April because the owner, Riverfront Holdings II, LLC, says it can't pay for the work.
The city has put a lien on the property for $18,206 to pay for it. There is already a lien of for $14,512 for clean-up the city did last year.
The work should be done in about a week.
