Union Hotel Demolition

  • The City of Trail purchased the Union Hotel and three adjacent properties on Cedar Avenue, for a total cost of $125,000.  The initial negotiations took place in late 2016 through to early 2017 with an official closing date of August 31, 2017. In 2018, the City contracted with Peak Environmental, a full-service environmental consulting firm, to oversee the hazardous material abatement for the building. The total cost of the abatement was $300,000. 
  • The City then contracted with Dakota Reclamators Ltd. for the demolition of the Union Hotel and the building located at 1144 Cedar Avenue, and remediation of the lots. 
  • The combined and remediated property was put on the market to potential buyers for development. In the interim, the City  opened the space for people seeking monthly paid parking spaces.
  • On July 30, 2021, the City closed the sale of the lot to BJT Properties for development of a Dairy Queen Grill & Chill restaurant.  BJT Properties is currently in the design phase and hopes to tender the project’s construction by the end of the summer with an anticipated completion date of spring 2022.  Read the full media release here: https://bit.ly/3mv3ZGL
