State Figuring Out Docking Demolition Timeline

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- State officials are still working on a timeline that would have a historic Topeka State Office Building demolished.

Jeannine Koranda, the public information officer for the Kansas Department of Revenue, told 13 News a move out of the Docking Building is unlikely to happen before next summer.

Crews are already gutting vacant floors of the building which currently houses about 1,200 workers.

Last week we reported the Department of Children and Families is looking to move its 250 workers to the current DCF Service Center at the Van Buren Building.

Department of Administration spokesman, Todd Fertig, told us that the state recently completed taking bids on potential downtown Topeka sites where they may relocate the rest of the workers when Docking is demolished.
