RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The 9/11 memorial monument erected on the Old Virginia Brick property in Salem will be donated to the City. Motleys Asset Disposition Group is working closely with the appropriate parties involved with the Old Virginia Brick company properties and assets and the City of Salem to coordinate the donation and relocation effort.
A specific public location for the monument has not been determined yet. The Old Virginia Brick company recently ceased operations and a foreclosure sale for its properties and assets is scheduled for June 23.
Motleys initiated the effort to donate the memorial to the City of Salem based on response from the Salem community and insight from the National September 11 Memorial & Museum related to protecting and maintaining the monument for Salem residents and visitors to the city.
“It has been our intention all along to proceed in an appropriate and respectful manner,” said Mark Motley, CAI, AARE, President of Motleys Asset Disposition Group. “With confirmation of the donation to the City of Salem in place, we’re now moving forward to address the logistical requirements on relocating the monument within the city.”
Surplus bricks from the Old Virginia Brick company will be used for the base of the monument at its new location. CSE, an area company providing crane, rigging and erection services, has offered its services and machinery to the effort. Local industrial businesses interested in providing support related to transport and erection services for the monument can contact Motleys at 804-232-3300, email@example.com.
