Derelict St David’s building demolished
An old building was demolished because its government quango owners said it would cost too much to repair.
The Bermuda Land Development Corporation tore down the derelict Lilyfield Place in St David’s about six weeks ago.
It was once part of the US Naval Air Station and later used as apartments.
A spokeswoman for the BLDC said the building had been due for demolition “for some time”.
She said: “The building was built with a wooden frame, which deteriorated over time and was no longer fit for occupancy.
“The cost to upgrade the building was prohibitive, so the decision was made to demolish it.
“The building was demolished with minimum concern in two weeks.”
