Recognizable for its three-storey tall Rod of Asclepius symbol, the Fort Royal Medical Centre on Richmond Avenue at Fort Street is slated for demolition. An assisted living residence for seniors is planned to rise in its place.

Thanks for posting this- although renderings are not available yet, can we assume that this will likely be a wood-framed structure at 5 storeys?

Yes, it likely will be woodframed. But you never know, they may opt for concrete.

Rod of Asclepius is the symbol of medicine. Rod of Langford bought himself a Chevelle.

 

I hope that symbol is not scrapped and finds a new home on another medical building.

I get a kick out of the "For Lease" sign in front of the building. That will be an uphill climb for that realtor.

Interesting note that this building was originally built without a wheelchair accessible elevator. The additional elevator on the north end was added in the late 70's or early 80's.

When you include the massive surface parking lot, quite a sizable structure could be built here.
