Say your goodbyes to Hamilton’s iconic Board of Education building before it’s gone. As expected, city staff approved the demolition permit for the iconic eight-storey building across from City Hall.

The building is slated for demolition to be replaced by a new McMaster medical education building.

I’ll post the demolition permit tomorrow when I receive a copy from city staff.
