After being vacant for years, The Landing Restaurant was demolished Tuesday, clearing the lot for future use.
The property is owned by Deering Investments Inc. care of John J. Peters, Jr. The building was constructed in 1989 as a Sizzler Restaurant and was converted to The Landing Restaurant in 2005, but later closed.
“Nothing is going in right away,” said Windham Economic Development director Tom Bartell. “They couldn’t find a match [for the building],” he said.
The property with 6,098 square feet of floor space was valued at $785,100 in 2014. The land is worth $214,900, according to the town’s assessment website. It is possible that the land could be leased or sold in the future, Bartell said.
Deering Investments Inc. could not be reached for comment.
