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. 

Photos of the demolition from July 17, 2019 through July 7, 2019 are available through the time lapse software here.

The Construction Waste Disposal and Diversion Report from the demolition is available for download here.

The combined and remediated property is now on the market to potential buyers for development. In the interim, the City will open to the space for people seeking monthly paid parking spaces.
