PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Both construction and demolition continue to move along at a fast pace at the corner of Pine and North Gilpin streets at what is to be known as Grace Place, a senior living facility.
Demolition began Monday on a portion of the former Grube Hospital building. The portion of the building that is adjacent to Pine Street is being razed to make room for Grace Place, a 24-unit housing complex for moderate-income seniors.
The $6.5 million project is being constructed by the Jefferson Area Lutheran Social Ministry and Trek Development.
