A demolition crane sorted rubble from downtown's Silver Dollar Room Wednesday afternoon, making way for the Danville Hotel Project.

Local dignitaries attended a demolition ceremony at the site in the late morning, according to Bay City News.

The iconic Silver Dollar Room was knocked down after standing neglected and dilapidated in recent years. City records show it was built in 1965.

"The shops were controversial as some of the residents thought it looked more like a carnival attraction than a historical building," reads a booklet written on the history of the Danville Hotel structures provided by the Museum of the San Ramon Valley.

The project plans preserve and restore the Danville Hotel and McCauley House, while constructing over 34,000 square feet of residential, retail and restaurant space.
