ALBANY, N.Y. – The Wellington Annex in Albany will be demolished Saturday morning.

The implosion was supposed to take place on Thursday, but the date was moved due to scheduling conflicts with the Maryland-based “Controlled Demolition Incorporated.”

The Wellington Annex dates back to the 1920s, serving as part of the Wellington Hotel on State Street.

Although there is history behind it, the developers say it is time to let the building go. The owners sold the land to the Albany Convention Center Authority for $4 million to make way for new the convention center.

The Albany Police Department released the following road closures and parking restrictions for the demolition:
