Demolitiongoing, going, gone...Windsor

501 Erie Street West – Demolition

Today’s photo comes courtesy of my brother who happened by Erie and Bruce yesterday. We first looked at this place back in October, 2008. If you take a look at the pictures in that post, you’ll see a copy of the order posted to the building. That order was:

AN ORDER TO DEMOLISH THE BUILDING AND CLEAR THE SITE ON OR BEFORE AUGUST 1, 2008.

Demolition finally got under way yesterday.

So…

From and including: Friday, August 1, 2008
To and including: Tuesday, May 1, 2012

It is 1370 days since the original deadline to have the site cleared.

Or 3 years, 9 months, 1 day.

This should leave someone very ashamed and embarrassed.
