Rockland — The Center for Maine Contemporary Art has all of the necessary permits in place to start demolition of the 21 Winter St. building to make way for the new contemporary art center, according to the code office.

CMCA received Planning Board approval in April for a $2.5 million, 11,886-square-foot contemporary art center.

 

During the project the east-bound side of Winter Street will be closed to traffic immediately in front of the site. However, one-way traffic will be allowed, according to the demolition plan prepared by George C. Hall & Sons.

Paperwork on file at city hall said the work could begin anytime after Tuesday, Sept. 2 and could be completed by Wednesday, Sept. 10. A representative from CMCA said Aug. 27 the work is tentatively set to begin around Sept. 8, but first the center will contact all of its neighbors to inform them of the project.
