Demolition has begun on a string of abandoned and boarded-up houses at Durham and Eagle roads. The property will soon be home to an assisted living complex.
Last month, the Newtown Township Board of Supervisors approved development and financial security agreements for The Birches, a 87,000-square-foot, 120-bed assisted living complex.
The facility will be located on about 8.6 acres across from the Corner Bakery Cafe.
Cleanup and demolition will likely take about three months to complete.
Construction will begin once the cleanup and demolition is finished.
