Capt. Sandy Yawn had hoped to renovate this building at 618 W. Adams St., but the cost of saving the structure was too high.

Citing permission after historic review, the city of Jacksonville issued a permit Thursday for TV personality Capt. Sandy Yawn to demolish a more than century-old building she bought Downtown.

Contractor ELEV8 Demolition will demolish the structure at 618 W. Adam St. The permit shows a project cost of $24,000.

Duval County property records say the structure was built in 1914. The two-story building comprises 6,840 square feet of enclosed space and 760 square feet of unenclosed space.
