SkipjacksDemolitionBack in October 2012, the property owner received a Special Permit for a project to tear down the International Bicycle and Skipjack buildings on Needham St and build a new retail complex.

I just noticed today that demolition has begun.  The Skipjacks building is now gone and just the shell of International Bicycle is still standing.   I’m surprised International Bicycle left behind that nice yellow awning.

The plan is  to replace the existing 14,000 sq ft of buildings with two new buildings totaling 19,200 sq ft.  Here’s some details and artists rendering of what it will look like.

Meanwhile, International Bicycle has moved right across the street to 66 Needham Street.  That’s great news because International Bicycle has always been a great local business that’s always been willing to pitch in with help for various local bicycle related activities.

Note: My original post had some garbled and incorrect info.  I was mixing up two different properties.  This is a corrected version (Thanks Srdj).
