The structure once known as Air Force Research Laboratory Building 240 during the days of Griffiss Air Force Base, is in the midst of being demolished at the corner of Floyd Avenue and Hill Road. Ancillary buildings have already come down and asbestos abatement has begun at the site, with the main building expected to be completely cleared by June. Construction of a Stewart’s Shop on two acres at the corner of Floyd Avenue and Hill Road, is slated to begin toward the end of the year and expected be completed sometime in 2017 in conjunction with the State Route 825 project.
I worked on Bldg 240 projects from 1981 – 2004 when the building was closed. With the demolition moving at a fast pace there was a call for another reunion.
