The Ward Broome building at 2431 Weston Rd will almost certainly be demolished. In Community Council yesterday, the recommendation of city staff was approved.
The Broome building was spared once before. An application to demolish it went all the way to City Council before it was pulled back for a second thought. The Weston Historical Society was given a chance to have a peek inside and see if the building was worth saving.
The Society found a few things of interest, which they will have the chance to preserve. The Historical Society will also be notified in the future if another building is threatened with demolition.
