Bids to demolish former Jacksonville City Hall, courthouse opened
Announcement comes days after JEA cooling towers demolished
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The City of Jacksonville opened bids Wednesday from companies that want to demolish the old courthouse and City Hall building along the Northbank.
It comes after the implosion of the JEA cooling towers, which were destroyed at the St. Johns River Power Park on Saturday.
Total Wrecking and Environmental is one of the companies bidding on the project. It's the same firm that took down the cooling towers.
The firm was among five others that submitted proposals to the city; ranging from $7.9 million to $11 million. Some companies would implode the building, while others said they would tear it down with wrecking balls.
The City of Jacksonville will carefully review what each company is suggesting. It will make a selection at a later date.
