Demolition Watch

Perhaps a case of premature demolition, the city has granted the building owners of 437-441 Powell Street until January 31, 2014 to put in a little TLC in order to prevent the 122 year old building from being demolished. Included in the list of items for repair is the structural reinforcement of the wall on the eastern and southern portion of the building. In the meantime, a group called Friends of 439 has started a fundraising drive to assist with the preservation. [Georgia Straight]
