Watch: Goodbye Largo High; demolition begins

Workers began tearing down Largo High School Friday, making way for a new $55 million campus to be completed in two years. In the meantime, the school's 1,600 students will attend classes in portables. The school opened in 1957.

Workers with Ajax demolition company watch as an excavator is used to demolish Largo High School's Administration Building on Friday. The project will take about two months. They are focusing first on the administration building and C wing. The demolition begins days after architects of the new Largo High unveiled their plans at the school board workshop. "It has a collegiate feel," said Jeffrey Cobble, president of Harvard Jolly, a St. Petersburg-based firm involved with the planning. Drivers will enter the new Largo High at a traffic light on Missouri Avenue. The front entrance to the school will be more visible to a new visitor than in the past, Jolly said. DOUGLAS R.
