Part of a downtown Raleigh street is now reopened after the City closed it last week due to a crumbling building.

One lane of South Wilmington Street between Cabarrus and Martin streets had been blocked off since Friday, as crews worked to demolish the front portion of a more than 100-year-old building.

The owner of the 301 South Wilmington Street building decided to demolish the front of the structure after it began buckling last week.

A barrier was set up around the building after cracks were spotted throughout the brick and pieces started popping out of the structure.
