A group of Osborne Village residents has lost an appeal to save a 102-year-old Roslyn Road home from demolition. Dennistoun House, once home to a Manitoba Court of Appeal justice, is among four houses set to be torn down to make way for a 74-unit condominium complex.
Winnipeg city council stripped the building of its historic designation in June 2009.
Last fall, a group of neighbourhood residents -- Judith Lehn, David Wilken, Leonard Chackowsky and Jennifer Lukovich -- appealed to the Manitoba Court of Queen's Bench, hoping the court would find demolishing the building went against the plan for the neighbourhood.
Wilken said the group learned late Friday of the judge's decision to reject the appeal.
"We're just reviewing the decision right now, and I anticipate we're going to be meeting with our lawyers in the next few days," he said.
Wilken said he couldn't comment on whether the group has any further options. "We'll just have to take it one step at a time at this time," he said.
