Demolition Underway Of Lakeview Hospital On Beaver Dam Waterfront

(Beaver Dam) Demolition has begun on the former Lakeview Hospital. Beaver Dam Common Council in June approved the hiring of Badgerland Demolition of De Pere to demolish the dilapidated structure for $386-thousand dollars. The city purchased the La Crosse Street building for $225-thousand dollars one year ago. Asbestos removal, which totaled $483-thousand dollars, had a targeted completion date of October 31. The property is expected to be turned over to the developer on February 1, 2020. The dilapidated structure and an adjacent property are being developed into high-end, lakefront condominiums.
