The city of Kyle will be demolishing three city-owned buildings in downtown following City Council approval Nov. 14.

American Abatement LLC, a San Antonio-based abatement company, will execute the demolition and perform asbestos surveying and removal.

City Manager Bryan Langley told Community Impact that the buildings were chosen for demolition because they are in poor conditions and would require significant investment to repair.

"We do not believe that the buildings, in their current configuration, represent the highest and best use of the land in that area," Langley said.

The buildings slated for demolition are located at:
  • 300 W. Center St., former animal control and evidence facility
  • 103 S. Front St., former police department
  • 111 S. Front St., former VFW building
The cost

The demolition process will cost a maximum total of $209,920.
  • Demolition: $150,970
  • Asbestos survey/removal: $24,700
  • Granite removal alternate: $34,250
Funding for the demolishing of the aforementioned downtown properties comes from the city’s general fund.

The city expects to begin demolition in mid-December and finish by the end of the year.
