Demolition work now is well underway at the site of the planned second new Mather Lifeways building in downtown Evanston.

The old Georgian Hotel is gradually falling to wrecking crews, in preparation for building a new retirement community akin to the one that opened last fall just across Davis Street at its intersection with Hinman Avenue.

The replacement for the Georgian is scheduled to open in 2011.
