Tuesday, August 27, 2013, Rhine began demolishing part of the one-story wing of the old Parkland Elementary School. This demolition is part of the project to build Garfield Station, a high rise apartment building with shops in Parkland near PLU. The main portion of the Parkland School is still standing, it is going to be used for the Mt. Rainier Lutheran High School starting this year.
This demolition took a few hours longer than the previous day as the building was concrete block and the materials in it were better suited to sorting and recycling. Still, the building was down before 1 p.m.
Here are some photos from the Parkland School demolition.
