Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The skyline in Downtown Duluth will be changing soon, as the Palladio and former KDLH buildings come down to make room for the new Maurices Headquarters and parking ramp.

Starting Tuesday, weather permitting, concrete barricades and heavy equipment will move onto the construction site along the 400 block of West Superior Street. It will remain open for two–way traffic.

Four–way stop signs will be installed at Fifth Avenue West, so drivers can expect delays during busy times.

Demolition of the former KDLH building will begin the week of May 5th, and the Palladio building's demolition will follow in early June.

Officials say plans are in place to minimize noise pollution, debris, and vibration in the area.

The new Maurices headquarters will be approximately 200,000 square feet, and stand 11 stories tall.

It will be occupied in the Spring of 2016.
