A commercial bakery complex in Burlington, Vermont, that employed as many as 200 people as recently as 2021 is being targeted for demolition by the property’s new owner.

A report from VTDigger says the former Koffee Kup Bakery facility, which closed suddenly in April 2021, has been purchased Phoenix-based Amerco Real Estate, a company known to operate U-Haul truck rental locations.

Amerco Real Estate has filed for a permit from the city of Burlington to demolish the existing structures on the Koffee Kup property.

Citing Burlington city records, VTDigger says the Arizona real estate company bought the property last October and filed for the demolition permit the following month. According to the report, the permit indicates the buildings must be inspected for asbestos, lead or other hazards prior to dismantling.

Real estate listings for the property indicate there is about 27,200 square feet of industrial space located on nearly 1.9 acres of land. One website lists it as being built in 1966 and having a concrete block structure, with photos showing sheet metal siding.
