DETROIT - The demolition process has begun on the former Hannan Memorial YMCA located at 10401 E. Jefferson Ave. on Detroitís east side. The building has been left vacant for more than two decades and has become severely dilapidated. The roof has been compromised, and falling bricks and debris pose safety hazards to the community. Therefore, the decision to demolish the Hannan Memorial YMCA was made to ensure the safety of residents and pave the way for a safer environment.

Although the structure holds sentimental value for many Detroiters, the initiative aligns with the broader vision of removing blight and encouraging redevelopment in Detroit. The City of Detroit is committed to enhancing the quality of life for all residents and visitors. The vacant land resulting from the demolition presents an opportunity for innovative structures that contribute to the city's growth and prosperity.

LaJuan Counts, director of the Detroit Construction & Demolition Department, acknowledges the building's historical significance and the emotional connection that residents have with it. However, the current state of the building demands decisive action to ensure the safety of the community.
