Council Votes to Demolish the Lister Block
Judgment day has arrived for Hamilton’s Lister Block.
Councillors voted Wednesday night to demolish the building to make way for a $30-million office building with a replicated facade.
The wild card, however, remains in the province’s hands.
Councillor Brian McHattie has asked the government to intervene and designate the Lister as a provincial heritage building. The Minister of Culture plans to weigh in now that council has voted. (Source: Hamilton Spectator)
