Demolition begins at former Marquette General hospital site
MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Demolition has begun at the former Marquette General Hospital site in Marquette.
On Thursday, the entrance to the old hospital was removed as demolition began.
NMU Foundation Executive Director David Nyberg said that the demolition will take place in two phases. Phase one includes demolishing all of the building on the former hospital site that are south of College Avenue except for the blood bank building.
Phase two will be demolishing the blood bank building and the Nelberg building.
The old hospital will be turned into housing, commercial space, green space and pedestrian corridors.
Adamo plans to repurpose and recycle up to 95% of the material, which will avoid significant landfill disposal while also mitigating project expenses. The company will also hire locally to execute the project.
