     History
    Neogothic apartment building in downtown Kitchener. Has sat empty since fire and electrical inspectors closed it in August 2007 for numerous violations.

    Recommend going at night, as it is on a main street.

    Most windows have now been broken and boarded up, making it more difficult to get in.
    Most of the personal belongings have been cleared out as well.

     Future Plans
    Demolition. They had originally planned to save the front of the building, but claim it's too costly to preserve.
