Demolition of Burg’s Western Carpet Warehouse Begins


The large Western Carpet warehouse on Wythe Avenue between 4th and 5th streets is in the process of being taken down, clearing the way for a large, new 157-unit building that’s planned here. The warehouse, which was owned for decades by the family-run Western Carpet company, was purchased by the real estate fund AREA Property Partners for $27.5 million last year. A reader also noticed that the demolition had begun and sent in a bunch of photos; click through to see one of them.
