Crews demolish buildings at West and Agricola

The Commons Inn overlooks the timbers of the building that used to house the One World Cafe.
Crews just finished tearing down the two-story structure that once housed the One World Cafe. A worker said on Wednesday that the lot, on the northwest corner of West and Agricola, will soon be filled in with crushed stone. The other address that was demolished contained an office space most recently housing an anti-poverty activist group.

Not much of interest was visible in the rubble except for the singed pages of a mystery novel.

Any insight as to what is in store for this space? Any stories about what was?

    It was formerly the One World Cafe and HCAP offices, there was a fire there about a month ago but it was abandoned long before that. Here’s some pics of it being taken down:

    Just wondering if anyone has heard about what’s going up here. I heard whisperings of a software company, but beyond that, no details. Looks like a decent sized building going up – should be good news for local businesses!
