The building that once housed 17th Street Bar & Grill and Super Smokers BBQ in O’Fallon is no more.

The front portion of the building at 1711 W. U.S. 50 came down to make way for what O’Fallon city officials have said will be an urgent care center, though which specific center that will be has yet to be announced.

A fast-food chain has also considered building adjacent to the urgent care center, but that hasn’t been announced, either.

Demolition at the site began Aug. 25. Edwardsville-based Pro Excavating & Grading is handling the demolition and has until Tuesday to finish the work.
