The city ordered the demolition of the 107-year-old building — located at the corner of Station and Craig — in September, five years after a protracted process that began when the building was damaged when it was hit by a Duncan snowplow.
Citing safety and nuisance reasons after Worksafe BC closed the site, the city eventually rejected a bid by Faulkner to negotiate a deal to repair and save the building.
