BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Crews are in the process today of demolishing the former Sinaloa Mexican Restaurant building.
The restaurant served downtown Bakersfield for 62 years before closing in 2019. The same building, located on P Street between 20th and 21st streets, also served as the site of Bakersfield’s first orphanage, which opened in 1909.
17 News reported last year that the owner of the site, Sage Equities, was going to tear down the building to make room for a multi-story apartment complex on the site. It is unknown at this time if that is still the plan.
