THE END of an era is winding up today as the last of the three old buildings at Little Ave. ordered demolished by the city comes down.

The structure at 4520 Little Ave. had been partly removed but this last part, which had been rental accommodation, remained standing.

The building once served as a hospital operated by the Red Cross.

The other two buildings, 4440 Little Ave. and 4450 Little Ave., a Second World War-era barracks building, have already been demolished.

All three structures had been the subject of complaints and warnings by public officials of safety, health and nuisance hazards for years.

City council reached its demolition decision Nov. 26, 2012 following months of closed door meetings about what to do with the properties.
