Werthan Packaging demo begins

The demolition of the sprawling 1950s-era plant (here's to hoping there is no asbestos given the dust clouds blowing around 5th Av N and Hume St) started a few days ago:

What will replace the old packaging building.

UPDATE: David Kleinfelter, who is with the development group of the Werthan property, tells me that there was some asbestos in the building, but it "has been removed and properly disposed of by RC Mathews Contractors and its subcontractors" before the demolition pictured above began.
