WELLINGTON, Fla. — An unfinished CVS that has seemingly sat idle since a roof collapse in May is now being torn down, according to the village manager.

“They were given a deadline and a repair and demolish letter and the effective date of that is Dec. 2,” says Paul Schofield, who confirmed the building will be demolished next Tuesday.

Village inspectors had issues with how the roof was being installed on the building last spring before the collapse. And also found other things that concerned them.

“We found some of the concrete cells weren’t poured and beams were missing and attachment issues,” Schofield says.

The building has also become something of an eyesore for residents driving by on Forest Hill Blvd and shoppers in the plaza where the site is located.

“It’s been a long time a lot of inconvenience for wellington and the parking is a mess in here,” says Dave Koons.

Efforts to reach CVS and the builder for comment were not returned.
