1587 McDougall Demolition

Happy leap year! Let’s celebrate February 29th by knocking something down…

Back in May 2008, there was a massive fire at the front part of this building. Driving past I noticed that the next section of the building is coming down too.

There appears to be quite a bit of century old steel in there…

I’m sure that’s the reason for the careful demolition.

Sad to see another part of our industrial heritage bite the dust. We were once a city of industry and production. Today, a region of sprawl and vacant lots in the old industrial zones.
