Time will tell....But I don't think there has been tenants in the law offices for awhile... Maybe someone on here can give a real confirmation of if they are still in or not.

I thought they said they would be starting construction in June? Trying to check back on the many articles.

I am not sure if the law office is relevant off the start, we really do not know if they intend to complete the foundations for both towers and the center base all at once or not? "Phase 1" as they call it does not look to affect the law offices from this document http://www.london.ca/newsroom/Docume...pplication.PDF

Has there been any activity on site recently, since the approval of funds from the city to help clean up?

It looked like the inside of the eye glass building was being worked on which hopefully they are to be demolished.

Your eyes can have it all at Hakim optical.

No marketing, no website, no phone number to call. They just line up to city hall to get millions of $ for soil testing and they are good at knocking down the row housing. Not very impressed with these guys. I wonder if they are really legit or not.

They're currently going through the site plan approval process with the City - you can't build anything if you don't have approved plans.

They could proceed with demolition permits at any time. The site plan approval doesn't depend on that.

The Hakim building could have been taken down last summer with the Camden Terrace row houses.

This article also talks about demolition with Rygars property on Fullarton St. which will start next month and may take up to 5 months to clean the site.

The first evidence that something is finally happening this morning.

A Hakim van and Hertz rental truck parked at the Hakim building moving fixtures out.

Could this finally be the first step to empty out the building for the demolition to proceed?

Interesting I wonder if that was part of the hold up, being that Hakim still had owned product in the building there may have been more behind the scenes stuff going on.

That is some positive news however, really want to see digging for a foundation before I actually get excited however.

So now Rygar is saying October based on this article.

http://www.lfpress.com/2017/07/27/pr...on-fuels-fears

So when Nov comes and still zero progress on Talbot street?

A number of months ago it was supposed to start July.

sounds a lot like the M.O. of Timothy Best and his Cayman Ice Palace.
Bullshit artist extraordinaire.



Tim has a bridge he wants to sell to you:

Well it is now Oct and other then some weed cutting on the pile of bricks where Camden Terrace stood there doesn't appear to be any other activity.

The Law offices still appear to be in business and Hakim optical is still sitting vacant.

Why is there a delay?
