Paslow demolition begins

Story Picture
And speaking of the Paslow building, this week demolition commenced on the remaining concrete section of the structure. Ministry of Works engineers concluded that the eighty-year-old columns and beams had been too weakened by the fire to support anything other than a single-storey building. Once the site is cleared, design work will begin on a new multi-storey government facility that will likely provide a modern home for the post office, which is now making do in the old parcel post section on North Front Street. Plans are already underway to relocate the Magistrate’s Court, now housed temporarily on Bishop Street, to the refurbished Treasury building on Regent Street.
