West Side Of Cutlass Motor Lodge Crashes Down
The Cutlass Motor Lodge, which financially struggled for a number of years and eventually was closed, was visited Tuesday by a massive backhoe and other equipment from Krueger & Steinfest, a local firm with expertise in building demolitions.
The west side of the sprawling complex, which housed the swimming pool, sauna, lounge, dining room, kitchen, offices, game room and check-in for the hotel, are the target of the machinerey this week.
Work is already underway to create 25 retro-modern apartments in the rooms by blending several of them together and providing food preparation and other lifestyle improvements.
Randy Lewis, general contractor, explained earlier that his crew have been working in the section of the structure being razed in a bid to salvage anything of value.
He’s been waiting for the demolition to get underway and all permits and approvals to be in place.
Based in Minneapolis, Trimac Rentals includes a mix of Antigo natives and outside developers, including Korey Stern, Jon Marshalla, Travis Budisalovich and David Dziamarski, who is handling local leasing arrangements.
The company started in Minneapolis and turned its sights to the northwoods, specifically the Antigo, Shawano and Rhinelander areas, because they felt there was an opportunity to invest in affordable quality housing.
