Demolition is expected to begin early next week in Savoy to make way for a new development.
David Borchers, owner of Borchers Decorating, which is handling the demolition, said the brick building on the southwest corner of Curtis Road and Dunlap Avenue and the house just south of there will be torn down. Borchers said that will take about three weeks.
The development includes a CVS pharmacy at the corner, a McDonald’s restaurant, and possibly a yet to be named specialty grocery store.
Savoy Zoning Administrator Dan Davies said the property will be turned over to the pharmacy chain on May 28 to begin construction.
Davies said the pharmacy is expected to be complete in late October, but added it is unclear when demolition will begin for the McDonald’s site.
