Report: Recent work at 21st and Broadway is to secure building against trespassers
A large swathe of plastic liner was recently draped over the former bank building at 1045 S. 21st St.
This led to speculation about what was in the works. Was the property owner, AHAG LLC, which is connected to the ownership group of the long-time 7-Eleven at 1001 S. 21st St., starting work on a new location?
No, as it turns out. A spokesperson for the 7-Eleven store said the building is not being removed, and the reason for the project is to secure the structure against trespassers.
The temporary plastic helps retain warmth inside for the workers.
AHAG had bought the 1.77-acre parcel in late 2014, after Kum & Go gave up on the location.
