Can demolished and makeover be used together?

The old Thai Embassy building has been demolished, and a new makeover is underway.

Can "demolished' and "makeover" be used together? I am under the impression that makeover is possible if a building is not demolished.

Thanks.

@tanguatlay,
Grammatically, yes. Logically, you are right. When it's demolished, it can be rebuilt, but not made over.

Makeover is US conversational English for a change for the better in appearance. I suppose a makeover of a building might include work such as repainting, renewal of doors, windows, deteriorated brickwork or roofing, etc. One cannot make over a demolished building.
