WATCH: Old Water Company Building's Facade Coming Down

After a protracted dispute between Louisville Metro officials and preservationists over historic structures at the downtown site of the proposed Omni Hotel and Residences, the facade of the old Louisville Water Company building came down on Wednesday.

At least, it began to.

A demolition crew started the careful process of dismantling the building's facade and sidewalls, which will go into storage for an undetermined period of time. Over the next 12 to 18 months, city officials will begin seeking proposals to reconstruct and reuse the facade, which dates to 1910.
