Maybe there’s something about this time of year that makes people want to knock stuff down. A little more than a week after the old Hamilton Laundry was razed, work began on demolishing Bachmann’s Tavern on St. Georges Avenue, near the Linden border.
The Zoning Board of Adjustment in February 2007 gave its approval for a new structure (.pdf) to replace the 65-year-old tavern. Demolition started last week on the parking lot side of the building. Plans are to construct a new building with three apartments. The garage on the rear of the property will remain but be updated to match the new tavern.
