Albany-- A historic Albany building is facing demolition.

The warehouse on Pine Avenue will be torn down instead of refurbished. The century old mortar is crumbling and two engineers say the building is structurally unsound.

The building is part of the Albany Tomorrow Downtown Redevelopment plan, and is suppose to house offices and the I-WORKS theater. The discovery is a small set back for the ATI budget. ATI President Tommy Chatmon says, "Certainly it is. It is unforeseen. So there is about a half-million dollar impact that we will have to raise privately to supplement the project that we had not anticipated originally."

The historic preservation commission and ATI agreed this morning to rebuild the warehouse exactly as it looked in 1907.
