The Denton Downtown Mini Mall will be demolished after the city approved a demolition permit for contractor Tactical Demolition, according to city spokeswoman Jessica Rogers. Demolition could occur as early as Tuesday.

Rogers said staff discussed different options with Leo Will, the property owner, including trying to save the building facade, but decided to go ahead with doing a full demolition following the four-alarm fire that occurred on Dec. 26.

Will could not be reached for comment.

The demolition will completely remove the structure down to the ground or slab where concrete exists. The contractor will take measures to prevent damage to neighboring properties as well as the adjoining sidewalk, according to the city staff report.

It is expected for the demolition to occur within seven days. The owners will be installing eight-foot-tall wooden fences on both facades once the demolition is complete. In preparation for spectators, staff are coordinating with police and fire to monitor the site conditions to ensure public safety.
