HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Crews have completed the demolition of a 75-year-old public housing complex in Huntington.

The first phase of the demolition of Northcott Court began in August 2014. The complex opened in 1940.

The Herald-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1RHs44R ) reports that Huntington West Virginia Housing Authority deputy director Larry Ellis gave an update on the project to the housing commission on Tuesday.

The authority plans to build two townhouse complexes at another location. Work on that project is expected to begin later this year.

City officials have proposed converting the Northcott Court property into a commercial district.
