Time-lapse photography captures Springfield YWCA demolition


Anyone lucky enough to be in the third floor conference room at the Illinois REALTORS® building between Feb. 1 and 7 had a front-row seat for the demolition of the old YWCA building on the northwest corner of 5th and Jackson streets. The building has been taken down to make way for a future urban park and pedestrian walkway that will connect the Lincoln Home National Historic Site and the Illinois State Capitol.

Watch the video to see how the demolition changes the appearance of the block just north of the Illinois Executive Mansion
