According to eyewitness reports, Copper Cliff Metals and Wrecking Corp. is currently stripping the copper and terra cotta heritage features from the facade of the Lister building.
Copper Cliff is owned by Tony DePasquale who is facing charges for having illegally demolished the Dynes Tavern without a permit last year.
DePasquale has a history of environmental protection act violations relating to improper storage of waste from a series of wrecking and waste companies.
Officials in the city's Building and Licensing Department say that the matter has been brought to their attention and they are investigating.
Update: On further investigation, it looks as though LIUNA is not stripping heritage features after all.
