A series of boarded-up and burnt-out townhouses on Erie Street in Midtown will finally be demolished under the City of Windsor’s blight mitigation strategy.

The City of Windsor’s Building Department is proceeding with demolition of an eight-unit townhouse building located at 501 Erie Street West between Bruce and Janette that has sat vacant for over half a decade and costs for demolition will be added to the taxes of the property owner.

Bylaw inspectors have paid 84 visits to the site since around 2005 and issued 12 building orders. Since then, the site has been borded up and secured by the City to prevent illegal access and the potential for vandalism and fires such as one nearby at 411 Elliott in 2011 which cost the fire department $17,561.31.

Demolition is scheduled for this Tuesday January 24th.
