Bethany Manor in Saskatoon's City Park demolished to make way for condo development

The site of the 100 year old Bethany Manor has been cleared of the old building and will soon be home to a new City Parkcondominium project. The home was destroyed last weekend to make way for the new development.

Local developer, Tim Ryan had offered to give the house to anyone who was prepared to move it to another location but the costs of moving the old structure were just too high.

City Park Community Association president, Michael Murphy expressed his disappointment in a story that appeared in the Star Phoenix just prior to the demolition. "An unusual, memorable historic house is about to be demolished to make way for a condo unit. It’s a character house which added some style to City Park. It’s 100 years old, a bit of history. It’s very sad to see it torn down and demolished," he said.

Others have said that the house was poorly designed and in bad repair. Clearly nobody was up for the challenge of renovating it.

A photo gallery of the demolition can be found here.
