The original building is hollowed out and has only 3 walls left.
No recycling of any of the old old 2 by 10 or 12 beams, which were at least 20 feet long.
So sad.
Just destroy it all and take it to the dump.

What exactly did you expect them to save out of that a few bricks and a couple of 2x10s its garbage and is being treated as such

The last picture shows the permanent table? areas

I always though the patios could not have permanent structures.

And there goes a few more parking spots.
But hey it is a multi billionaire building it.

Are you serious ??

The lumber alone would be worth it to a lot of people , never mind the bricks ..

But hey , it's just a "few" old bricks and a couple of 2x4's ..

What a waste ..
I payed attention in High school....But not to what they were trying to teach me..

It is not a demolition.

Cheaper to go buy new stuff than spend the time stripping it apart to sell a few 2x10s and old bricks nevermind the liability if they miss a nail and you cut your hand or if its covered in asbestos.

You'll never see that wood again unless you live until you're 200 years old , if that ..

Old , seasoned lumber goes for thick money because "they don't make it anymore "

If Tony Baloney gave a rats azz , he'd have stock piled it and made something out of it or sold it to someone who would have ..

What a waste .

Tell them to come and get them.
Let's see how many are willing to put in the work to;
~Pick them up and cart them away.
~Clean them and make them ready for re-use.

What is the value of time compared to the value of return?

How many saw blades would be destroyed by cutting cement coated lumber verses the difference in cost of buying virgin lumber?

How much time and labour would be involved to sort out and extract usable materials?

Who is going to pay that cost?

*****Rent a lot, truck the materials to that lot, buy liability insurance to cover accidents.
~~~~~Let others enter and pick-up what they want and cart it away.
~~~~~Pick-up what is left over, AGAIN, and take it to the dump.

For WHAT in return?

MAYBE a couple hundred bucks?........And that is before adding in storage and handling cost for "who knows" how many years ...

I have a big pile of century old, clear, Douglas Fir in my garage right now, taken from an old army barracks in Esquimalt, what's it worth?

To the right person, maybe a couple 1,000 $$.
To me if the power goes out.........priceless.

Send it to the dump and be done with it, people won't remember any of this "must do" part of the rejuvenation project that will bring millions of $$$ into the this area.

I have friends looking at buying in Kelowna. Unbelievable the Junk for sale on Clement and North End.....Close to the water LOL you mean the Sutherland Goose-Poop/Toxic waste mill Park. Close to the St Paul Injection Site/Rail trail homeless camp.

I told them to look in Glenmore, or Black Mountain. The 10 speeds and shopping carts can't make it up the hills!!!
