This face-paced project involved demolition of obsolete structures associated with conversion of the overall facility into a modern “racino style” gaming destination. Demolition work performed by O’Rourke Wrecking Company included removal of an 185,000 SF multi-story grandstand/office building, 200,000 SF of horse stables, a 30,000 SF off-track betting facility, numerous outbuildings and 600,000 SF of asphalt pavement. Of note, O’Rourke salvaged multiple historic artifacts and other items of significance for re-incorporation by the owner into the redevelopment work.
