The building that used to house the A1A Sandbar and Grille on Lexington’s Main Street is almost no more.

Superior Demolition started tearing down the building last week to make way for a five-story mixed-use building.

In April, the site was sold for $1.2 million to developer Jeff Morgan, who wants to have a business on the ground floor, condominiums on the upper four floors and a two-story, 52-space parking garage.

According to the development plan for the $7.5 million project, the first floor will be a bank, and the second through fifth floors will have 24 two-bedroom condominiums, with a rooftop garden and a recreation area.

Construction is scheduled to begin in early summer, with the tenant planning to move in fall 2017, Morgan said. The condos are to be priced at $299,000 to $349,000.
