Demolition has begun on the Coronation Block / Shanghai Restaurant Building. Constructed in 1882 -83, it was one just a handful of commercial buildings left from that era.
Touted as the location of a new seniors housing complex, in July 2010 city council demanded that designs be submitted and building permits to be taken out before a demolition permit was issued. Owners came back in late 2011 saying that they now opted for a vacant, landscaped lot instead. Council issued the permit.
