Brick Clock Tower Demolition
ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) – What once was a landmark that welcomed visitors to Rockford will soon be reduced to rubble. Attorneys for the new owners of the Clock Tower Resort say demolition will begin next month.
We are learning the demolition will begin within the next few weeks with the bulk of the work taking place throughout December.
Following the $3 million sale of the resort back in May, Ringland Johnson CEO Brent Johnson, one of the several new owners of the property, said demolition would cost between one and one and a half million dollars.
Ian Linnabary, an attorney with Reno and Zahm, who serves as counsel for the new owners says in a written statement, “The property had become a real eyesore and needed to be demolished to make way for new construction.”
