A tipster wrote in last week to tell us about the demolition of the Executive Inn on Phillips Lane by the Watterson Expressway: Executive Inn. It’s tumbling down. The wrecking balls are out, and it’s quite a sight to see.” We finally made it out to the demolition site today to snap a few photos to bring you all the destruction.
The old hotel’s web site is online, but simply states: “Thank you for 45 years of patronage! It has been our pleasure serving you.” The building was built like a concrete bunker making demolition with a wrecking ball a long and arduous task, so the rubble and ruins will likely be around a few more weeks.
