On Saturday, May 10, 2014 demolition work began on the Stewart-Dworkin House at 256 Rideau Street. It is not too late for it to be stopped.
Residents and community associations were not consulted prior to the issuing of a demolition permit or informed about it afterwards. There is a pending Site Plan Control Application for 256 Rideau which, according to the City, is still “on hold”. The City’s own rules indicate that a demolition permit will not be granted until plans for a replacement have been approved.
ASH issued the following Press Release on 256 Rideau Street today.
