Today is theme day for the City Daily Photo community and the theme is "worker." In the above photo, you can see a worker from D.H. Griffin in the middle of a demolition project at Chandler Concrete on Mill Street. Perhaps you've driven by Chandler Concrete for years; maybe noticed it when shopping at Edward McKay Books; marveled at this elaborate operation so close to downtown. We finally got around to featuring their business (here) in late September. Lo and behold, if we didn't see it getting demolished a little over a month later.
The two-acre site has been a concrete operation since 1946. However, the land has been sold to Mill Street Commons LLC and will likely become retail, matching the surrounding businesses. Additionally, the Greenway will go right by the property and a bike ride will be a little more pleasant without the noise and dust from concrete in the making.
You can read more about Chandler Concrete, here. Also, read more about the company's relocation to South Elm-Eugene and their restrictive covenant in the Mill Street sale that will enhance the Greenway (here). No wonder CEO Ted Chandler was voted one of the Triad's most influential people, always working hard for his company and, it appears, for Greensboro!
