It’s the end of the road for the City Motor Hotel.
The wreckers arrived today and will demolish the notorious east end establishment this week.
Residents fed up with the prostitution and crime in the area pushed for its closure. With the help of Ward 4 Councillor Sam Merulla, the city purchased the property for just under 2 million dollars.
Future plans for the site aren’t clear, but Merulla wants to see a complex that combines residential and commercial with a transportation hub.
