Casino Area Demolition

Over the weekend, some more demolitions took place. This house above…

…along with this one next door were both torched in a fire in April 2009.

Two and a half years later, they came down over this past weekend.

Sadly this large Victorian Commercial building also bit the dust.

Also victim of a suspicious fire this one was empty for the last few years.

It too bit the dust.

It’s too bad, in this Streetview screen capture, the corner of University & Glengarry, each had old Victorian era commercial buildings on each side, and it gave a glimpse into Windsor’s past. Now empty lots are all around.

I suspect more demolitions will follow in the casino area.
