A Sad Dismantling Process May Be Complete Soon

Despite a concerted effort to save the iconic Paramount Theatre, it met its fate with the wrecker's ball.

That sad 8 month process seems to be reaching the end.

It's almost hard to remember what the structure on King Square looked like these days when all that remains now is a gravel pile.

Mayor Mel Norton has said Saint John needs buildings and people not more parking lots and we get that through economic development.

Vacant since 2005, work on dismantling the uptown landmark began on September 18th of last year.
