A portion of a historic downtown Brookhaven building is under demolition.

A crew has worked several days to demolish and carefully remove the debris of a building on South First Street that has housed many offices over the years, including several attorneys. It was the offices portion of the former Kees Motor Company, still under the ownership of Gerald Kees.

City inspector David Fearn said the demo was slated to be complete within January, but he does not know the owner’s intended plans.
