Young Avenue home facing demolition after permit issued
Municipality has also received a subdivision application
Halifax has issued a demolition permit for another house in the South End.
George Tsimiklis has already demolished what was known as the Cleveland House at 851 Young Avenue. Now city officials confirm that Ambrose Environmental has just been given permission to demolish a five-unit residential building at 825 Young Avenue.
The municipality has also received a subdivision application from Steve Tsimiklis for a lot that includes both properties on Young Avenue as well as two others, 870 and 876 MacLean Street.
The subdivision proposal involves replacing the existing homes with 11 residential units.
The current rules would only allow for six.
Planners are now reviewing the application, which does not need approval from regional council. A decision will be up to the development officer.
