Happy Victoria Day everyone!

Regular readers of the site may recall the post on the boarded up Deluxe Apartments back in May, 2009.

The six-plex, after 2+ years, has met the same fate as the two houses to the north, and is now a pile of rubble. The building was demolished last Wednesday, May 18th.

As is the Windsor way, like we’ve seen time and again with demolitions, nothing is salvaged, and it all goes to the landfill. This picture shows a bathtub, fridge and stove all still this apartment. This is only one of six units.

There are now no buildings between Ontario Street and the St. Anne’s Grade School.

I hope the school board isn’t behind this. If they can’t afford to keep librarians on staff, they certainly can’t afford to be buying and demolishing properties 🙂
