A video by Catapult members Jamie Clemens and Caleb LB Randall looks at damage inside the Cash Feed building on Lake Mirror caused by Hurricane Irma. That damage has forced the Lakeland Economic Development Council to abandon its plans to convert the 1924 building into a new home for the Catapult Lakeland small business incubator. Next step: The Lakeland Historic Preservation Board meets next Thursday to consider the LEDC’s request to demolish the building. Project manager Wesley Beck told The Ledger that LEDC hopes to build a new structure for Catapult on the 502 E. Main Street property, perhaps emulating Cash Feed’s Mediterranean architecture.
