On May 28, demolition officially began on Eshleman Hall, a building that has been home to hundreds of student groups throughout the last 48 years — including The Daily Californian.

The Lower Sproul Redevelopment program plans to build a replacement by fall 2015.

Follow the demolition below as we bring you regular updates. A UC Berkeley webcam is also available here.
