Phoenix Hotel, 1981

Posted on October 18, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

The Phoenix Hotel in downtown Lexington, at Main Street and Limestone, on June 22, 1981. The Phoenix was demolished in 1981 and 1982 by Wallace Wilkinson, who planned to use the site to build the World Coal Center skyscraper. It was never built, and the site eventually became the Park Plaza Apartments and Phoenix Park. Click here to see other images from our archives of the landmark hotel.
