A long warehouse that stretched along the railroad tracks from Main to Platt street in Albion has been reduced to piles of debris. The top photos were taken at about 3 this afternoon.

The Environmental Construction Group of Albion worked on the project this week with a lot of physical changes at the site in the past two days.

JFJ Holdings of North Andover, Mass., plans to build a new 2,000-square-foot Dunkin’ Donuts at the site, right next to Tim Hortons. The new store would have 30 seats inside, 46 parking spaces, a 230-square-foot freezer next to the building, and a drive-through lane that could accommodate 10 vehicles.

The property will have exits on both Main and Platt streets.

The photo directly above shows how the property looked last year before the demolition crews arrived.

The two photos directly above show the site this morning at about 9:30 when big sections of the warehouse were still standing. The photos are from Platt Street looking west toward Main.
