Former Bay Books Demolished; Makes Way For New Building
Updated: March 20, 2020 - 1:06 pm

You have probably noticed the big gap in the middle of the block between Ninth and Tenth streets on Orange Avenue. The location was the former home of Bay Books. Dempsey Construction recently demolished the building and is working on making improvements to the structure and creating space for three suites: Suite A will be 1,650 sq. feet, Suite B, 1,311 sq. ft. and Suite C, 752 sq. ft. The building will also have a bathroom for use by F 45 patrons and a gym planned inside part of El Cordova Garage building. Eight feet have been taken away from the diminished building to create a 12 ft. wide breezeway that goes from Orange Avenue to the parking lot facing C Avenue. A small breezeway was already there but not available for use to the public.

Dempsey has done the partial demolition of the west side which includes the exterior walls, roof and concrete foundation. The reconstruction of a new concrete foundation and exterior walls to support existing roof, new storefront windows, new exterior finishes will take place over the next few months.

Chris Cardona, Dempsey Construction field operations, said that the building had some structural issues with the trusses which are being fixed. The exterior will have a light dash finish, which has a more urban look. The interior of the building will have high exposed ceilings. The construction crew found some interesting things like two and a half layers of roofing material over sheet metal and old trusses from around 1910. The new building will be modern and safe.
