LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A damaged strip mall in St. Matthews is finally getting demolished.

Crews started tearing down the Galleria of St. Matthews strip mall on Thursday.

In 2019, the roof partially collapsed and the building was condemned, forcing several businesses — like Del Frisco's, Havana Rumba and others — to close or relocate.

Real estate agency Kaden Companies bought the property back in June. At the time, it said it planned to redevelop the property into a place for retail and office or medical space.
