UTICA – Two buildings in Utica that have been boarded up for nearly a decade will be demolished in the coming weeks.

The buildings are located at the corner of Mohawk and Eagle streets. They were previously residential homes, but now the space will become a 10,000-square-foot commercial building.

Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri says that Benderson Development has started exploring potential development opportunities with the properties. He expects the city to be presented with plans within the next few months.

"This is going to be one of the last straws I would say in east side that have been really talked about for years,” Palmieri said. “And today we're telling you demolition is moving forward.”

“I think the residents have been very patient but I think if you just look at the building itself that it's not anything that someone would want to live next door to."

The buildings have sat vacant for more than a decade.

Palmieri says demolition of the buildings will begin Monday.
