This abandoned convent was built in 1951 and was acquired by the city in 2012.
Several different projects have been proposed for the site since then with nothing ever coming to fruition.
There has been talk of housing, student housing, daycare and more, it has been determined that due to the amount of asbestos within the construction, the building will have to be demolished.
The top floor and the basement still have power connected and lights on, I was told that recently the building even had an alarm, but we had no issues with that on our visit.
I was also told that not long ago there was no damage, vandalism or graffiti, there was quite a bit of that on our visit.
The sign-in board shows many names of explorers here before us and as we were leaving another explorer showed up with his young children, on their way inside
