I was walking up to Cocoa Cinnamon this morning when I noticed that the demolition of the Liberty Warehouse had begun on the Foster Street side of the building. Foster Street, between Corporation and Hunt streets, has been closed for several weeks as construction crews worked on the dismantling. 

I shot this with my iPhone, but I'll return this afternoon to get more visual documentation of the Liberty's demise. The future residents of these luxury apartments might want to know what the auction house looked like, not only in its heyday, but at its end.
