DOWNTOWN TEAR DOWN


Jeff Noack shows a skillful touch using this excavator to take down the old Lone Star Gas building on north Ackerman Street on Monday afternoon. Steve Noack of the Noack Partnership, which owns the property, said, “It wasn’t worth it to keep the building,” after having an inspection of the structure’s integrity. The building was constructed in the 1960s by Buck Henry and Lone Star Gas offices were housed there until 1993. Noack said the lot would remain vacant for now.
