Another building in Downtown Dothan is on the chopping block. The Booker Building on East Main Street has been on the Dothan Downtown Redevelopment Authority’s radar for about four years Structural reports showed it would take more to restore the building than to demolish it. However, unlike Saints Apartments, Executive Director of the DDRA Jansen Tidmore said they would like to see something new built there.
“We do believe that that lot is very important for a structure for downtown, so our board is looking to market that site for development. We hope to see a new structure built there,” explained Tidmore.
The DDRA must get approval from the Historic Preservation Commission before moving forward with demolition.
