In Phase 1 the former Cowboys Saloon area of the building was to be demolished.

The portions of the building fronting 100th street and 100th avenue would be demolished in the second phase. An assessment would then be made to determine the viability of keeping the remaining portion of the building, which fronts the alleyway parallel to 100th avenue.

A report from Seo’s engineer suggests crews will face special challenges in the first phase of demolition, as the roof over the Cowboy’s Saloon area is in a state of partial collapse.

The report also indicates the building has been broken into and occupied, and will need to be checked stringently for occupants as demolition is carried out. Other dangers include a partially flooded basement and uncertainty regarding the composition of structural joints in the building.

No timeline has been provided for the demolition.
