According to an article on March 5th, 2012 Le Devoir denounces the deplorable condition of the Redpath House.
A year after the Ville-Marie borough rejected a 7-story condominium project, the owner of the neighboring property, Moshe Eglander, is accusing the municipal authorities of laxness in the dossier, and is tired of seeing this historic building abandoned for 26 years.
However, as counsellor Alex Norris points out, “the city does have the tools to act. Last year, the Plateau-Mont-Royal borough brought forth an injunction in order to force the owner of a building located at the corner of Saint-Lawrence boulevard and Pine street to completely restore the delapidated building. The construction is now in progress.”
