Following a Sept. 9 meeting with town officials, AvalonBay presented preliminary plans to demolish the former site of the University Medical Center of Princeton between December 2013 and January 2014. The company will take down one floor at a time, instead of using a controlled blast, town engineer Robert V. Kiser said.
However, he noted AvalonBay still has to submit a formal demolition plan.
“Once the demolition plan comes in, we’ll be going over that in a very detailed way,” Kiser told the Packet.
He added that he does not anticipate that people living in the neighboring areas will have to temporarily evacuate their houses while the demolition occurs.
