The Sales Shed Goes Down on Marc Chagall

The shed on Marc Chagall Avenue, which was supposed to serve as as a model home for a large highrise condominium project, has been torn down. I am sure this will make neighbouring residents very happy.

They have been lobbying for this, noting that the small building was infested with different kinds of animals including groundhogs, skunks and squirrels. A previous council zoned this land for 17 storey condos many decades ago. Residents of Marc Chagall and neighbouring Mackle were not happy about this, but there was nothing council could do in regard to rezoning. Years passed from the time a sales office was established at the Cavendish Mall. The project seems to be dead. We followed the letter of the law in waiting for the allowable time to demolish the shed. There are no guarantees this land won't be developed in the future. But nothing appears imminent.
