Two century-old homes in the Osborne Village area are one step closer to meeting the wrecking ball.
Four buildings on Roslyn Street, directly behind the Osborne Village Safeway are slated for demolition to make way for a proposed seven-storey, 78-unit apartment building.
Two of the homes that would be demolished are more than 100 years old with the Dennistoun House at 166 Roslyn St. being built back in 1908, and the home at 176 Roslyn St. being built in 1909.
The city stripped Dennistoun House of historic designation back in 2009.
On Wednesday night the city centre community committee approved the developer's application, but the plan still has to go through city council.
