The demise of the vacant Triumph Building is near. 

Demolition is expected to proceed in coming weeks as the longtime retail center at the corner of Ridge Road and Martin Avenue makes way for a four story residential structure with a ground floor restaurant.

The final approval was granted at the Homewood Board of Trustees regular meeting on July 27.
