Port Authority to demolish Warehouse 2

Posted: Updated:

 

 
It's out with the old and in with the new as the Port Authority of Guam begins demolition of warehouse two as part of the agency's modernization projects.

Following a final walk through of the 100-thousand square feet unit this morning, port operations manager John Santos tells KUAM although the space has a lot of history, demolition is necessary.
 
"Once we tear her down, we'll have open space - over 9 acres of open space for general cargo. Where she's at our gantries have a challenge when we work around her so bringing her down would increase our actual capacity," Santos explained.
 
 Built by the U.S. Navy in 1968, the waterfront structure originally served as a storage facility for dried goods. Over the years, portions of space housed everything from a duty-free shop to a restaurant and a fishing company.
