July start for farmhouse demolition

Demolition of the Wilson farmhouse is expected to start in July and should be finished by early August, city hall says.
City staff are working to withdraw a notice of intention to designate the north end farmhouse under the Ontario Heritage Act, which was approved well before council’s May 21 decision to demolish the building.
The city has issued a Request For Proposal for the demolition, said a news release Tuesday.
Physical features from the farmhouse will be documented and salvaged, where possible, as directed by the city’s senior heritage planner. Two mature black walnut trees are to be protected during demolition.
The land area surrounding the farmhouse will be retained as parkland, and the city will integrate the parcel into the Wilson Farm Park Master Plan, the release said.
The two-storey, 2,263-sq.-ft. farmhouse, built about 1880, was acquired by the city in 2005 as part of a parkland dedication for the building of the Northern Heights subdivision.
