DETROIT (WKZO) -- A landmark in downtown Detroit will be demolished.  The former Hotel Charlevoix at Elizabeth Street and Park Avenue has been vacant for years.

The attorney for the owner of the property says he tried to maintain the building, but vandals have stripped the hotel over the years.  Officials had fenced off the sidewalk and a portion of the street in front of the building to prevent debris from falling onto passing motorists and pedestrians.

The property, near the Fox Theatre, is expected to be taken down by this summer.
