Detroit -- A permit has been issued to demolish the former Hotel Charlevoix, where falling bricks last year tore through the roof of a parked Chrysler 300, narrowly missing a child who had just gotten out of the car.

After a 10-year legal battle between the city and owner, crews could start razing the 11-story structure at 2029 Park in Grand Circus Park, in a popular downtown entertainment area, as soon as Monday. The building may become history by August, according to city officials and the lawyer for building owner Ralph Sachs.
