Old Cheswick Motel bound for the county landfill

By week’s end, the 58-year-old Cheswick Motel in Warrenton will disappear.

After the town condemned the 16,000-square-foot structure in June, property owner Giancarlo Oderda of Palm City, Fla., considered the options before agreeing to demolish the Cheswick, built in 1960.

Mr. Oderda then had to get town permits for asbestos abatement and demolition.

Last year, German grocer Lidl abandoned its plan to build there and on several other sites in the region.

The four-acre property at 394 Broadview Ave. remains on the market, with an asking price of $2.2 million.

The demolition and cleanup with cost an estimated $126,000, according to Dominion Construction Group’s permit application in Town Hall.

Heavy equipment operators from Complete Site Services and SMB Unlimited, both of Bealeton, started knocking down the one-story building Monday.

After separating masonry, metal and wood, dump trucks will haul the debris to Fauquier’s landfill.

Complete Site owner Kip Hull estimated the trucks, rated at 18-ton payloads, would make 30 trips to the dump.

Drove by today, even with some debris remaining, it already looks better in that area.
