Downtowner Inn Demolition/Anniston
A long standing structure in the city of Anniston will soon be no more. The Downtowner Inn has stood at 4th and Quintard for 44 years. But this week, owner Jim Coxwell began demolition. City leaders have been talking with Coxwell about tearing down the building. It’s something they say will open the door for new development. In 2010, the city of Anniston lost a bid for the property when it was in foreclosure. Coxwell later donated it to Renovation Ministries, but they gave it back to him last month due to maintenance expenses. City leaders say they’re looking forward to the possibility of development on the soon-to-be vacant lot.
