#BuiltHeritage – 2/3 of #HamOnt Heritage Church to be Demolished

#HamOnt Developer made a surprised requested to demolished 2/3 of the heritage designated James Baptist Church.

The Developer, who had purchased the Church in 2012, plans to build a condo tower, incorporating the Church as part of the project.  Last week, the developer requested that they be permitted to demolish everything beyond the front section of the Church.  The Developer claims that the building is structurally unsafe and must be removed if any portion of the building is to be saved.  Heritage advocates are surprised and concerned about this development.  Local reporter, Joey Coleman broke this story and his report and the debate among heritage supporters can be found at the online Blog: Raise the Hammer.
