Silos begin to come down
The demolition of 22 silos at the former Solae property on Floyd Street began July 31.
Workers for LVI/NCM, hired by the University of Louisville Foundation to clear the property, used specialized demolition equipment for the job.
Demolition is expected to take a few days. The public is not allowed on the 15-acre site, but those who want to view the work should be able to see it from Floyd Street.
The UofL Foundation purchased the former soybean production property in December. Once cleared, the property will open up the views of the Belknap campus to motorists along I-65 and will become, in the short term, a parking lot for UofL football games while the university explores future uses.
