A blighted building in downtown Billings is set to be razed Tuesday.
Demolition crews will begin tearing down the building at 115 N. 22nd St., once police have swept the structure for vagrants.
The property has been a hot spot for nuisance activity for years. A neighbor of the an adjoining property, Carol Kraft, recently bought the building and was awarded $6,343 in city tax increment funding to tear it down.
The Billings City Council during its June 23 meeting approved funding for the demolition and cleanup.
Kraft hasn't decided on a new use for the property, but a mixed-use building containing downtown housing and business space is possible.
The Billings Industrial Revitalization District, a nonprofit group worked with Kraft and the city to get the building torn down. The BIRD, as the group is known, represents business owners in the East Billings Urban Renewal; District, a 400-acre tax increment finance district in the heart of Billings.
