Scaffolding Removed Around Paul Martin Building


The Paul Martin building in downtown Windsor is back to normal.

Scaffolding that had surrounded the crumbling facade for a couple of years has come down and the 100 block of Ouellette Avenue is back to normal.

Colonial Building Restoration, out of Scarborough, began the work in April 2016 to fix the facade and completed the work earlier this month.

The contract was worth $3-million.

The federal government sold the building to the city for one dollar and it is hoped the University of Windsor will use the building as a law school.

Back in 2014, safety concerns were raised by Revenue Canada workers about  exterior pieces of the building falling down.
