Demolition crews began tearing down the Clinton Campbell House in South Roosevelt after a nearly two-year legal process to decide the building’s fate.

The 122-year-old building, which resided at 357 North Forth Avenue in downtown Phoenix, was purchased in 2015 by Glasir Capital Partners, which sought to demolish the structure after evaluating the property.

The company filed a demolition permit for the property earlier this summer, and the City of Phoenix Historic Preservation Commission upheld the decision in June, despite appeals from the community.

“We’ve been following this,” said Kimberly Kasper, who lives just down the street from the Clinton Campbell House. “We knew it was coming at some point, but didn’t know it was coming today.”
