The 93-year-old Lakeland Cash Feed Building is scheduled for demolition as early as Tuesday after engineers determined that damage sustained during Hurricane Irma made it impractical to continue renovations.

The findings caused the Lakeland Economic Development Council to halt plans to renovate the building overlooking Lake Mirror into the new home for the Catapult small business incubator.

Instead, LEDC will build a new three-story Catapult building on the site; the proposed design pays homage to Lakeland Cash Feed by including some of its Mediterranean Revival curves.

LEDC received permission to demolish the building from the Lakeland Historic Preservation Board in October and was granted a demolition permit on Friday | Read previous Catapult coverage
