The Canadian Transit Corporation is looking to tear down on of their houses on Felix Avenue in West Windsor.

A City administration report says that the Planning and Building Department received a demolition permit application on August 19th to demolish the vacant residential house located at 873 Felix. The roof of the single storey home has suffered a partial collapse.

The Canadian Transit Corporation had hired GS Engineering Consultants to inspect the home, who then recommend the demolition of the building.

The city report says that there is no immediate risk of further collapse — which would warrant immediate demolition. The Chief Building Official recommends that “the current plastic safety fence be replaced with 6′-0″ modular steel construction fencing to more effectively restrict unauthorized access to the building as well at the area around the building until such time a development approval and construction permit is obtained from the City.”

The city says that the condition of this roof along with numerous other building condition defects at the subject property were included as part of an ‘Order to Repair’ issued September 20th, 2013 by the Inspections Division.

That order and others issued around that time for other CTC properties in the area were appealed by CTC to the Property Standards Committee, and subsequently to the Superior Court of Justice.

City Council will be asked to deny the demolition on November 16, 2015.
