Grad House Demolition

Well, well, well… How’s a little weekend demolition for you?

Smacked down on a Saturday, with a legal challenge pending by a group of students, the U of W, ever the visionaries demolished the 1929 Harry Gignac house.

Despite claims of needed repairs, the whole second floor was demolished, but the chimney stayed standing.

Usually when buildings are poorly maintained, the first thing that fails is the large ornate chimney.

Not here, despite the claims of the Graduate Students Society and the University.

Get ready, coming soon, more turdish modern architecture, and hopefully some surface lots!
