It is the beginning of the end for one Wilmington landmark.

Crews started demolition on the former Wilmington Police Department headquarters on Red Cross Street. The building will come down to make way for the new Union Station Building at Cape Fear Community College.

It will take about a week to knock down the entire building. This is the first project paid for by the 2008 bond referendum.

“This year we turned away a lot of students. When we get this new building, we hope to be able to expand our capacity to enroll new students in the future,” explained CFCC spokesperson David Hardin.

The station building is scheduled to be completed for the 2012 school year.
