Riverview demolition changing face of Phenix City

Heaping piles of rubble, brick, concrete and twisted metal are about all that's left of several buildings at the former Riverview Apartments in Phenix City that are being demolished.

The demolition, being done by Reaves Construction, will take down 13 of the complex's buildings. Plans are for construction of an approximately 30,000-square-foot Troy University classroom building to be built within three years.

Demolition began the morning of November 20 and is expected to take four to five weeks to complete
