Don’t Panic! A portion of the front wall of Trackside and Fifth Earl will be demolished this evening. This work is necessary because the fire earlier this year destroyed critical structural components and a segment of the front wall had pulled away from the building and was collapsing. This retail strip is made up of several individual buildings which were cobbled together over time into a small retail center. So, while Trackside and Fifth Earl appeared to be in two buildings, they actually occupied at least three individual buildings that had been joined together and then subdivided over the years. The damaged wall section being demolished includes the far right side of Trackside and the left section of Fifth Earl. The eastern-most lane of College Avenue adjacent to the building will be closed to traffic from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. as the demolition work is completed. Plans are still underway to restore the building and reopen the businesses. The demolition work marks the first step in the reconstruction.
