MURPHYSBORO (WSIL) -- The Gillenberg furniture building in Murphysboro will be demolished at the end of the month.

A storm collapsed part of the roof in July 2018.

Mayor Will Stephens says 9th Street will be closed during the demolition. He says it's up to the property owners what happens with the empty lot afterwards.

Stephens says he's happy the situation has been resolved.

"I'm happy to see that there's going to be some progress because it's taken a while to get things going there," he said.

The demolition is set for February 24th.
