Montreal Trend House set to be demolished

Sadly, the Beaconsfield City Council voted today (5-1) to allow the demolition of the Montreal Trend House, designed by Phillip Goodfellow. Over the past 8 weeks or so, a concerted effort was made to raise awareness of both the home as well as the Trend House Program in order to try and stop the demolition, led by the architect’s son Michael Goodfellow, with the support of the Beaconsfield Historical Society, as well as Héritage Montreal.

Michael has put together an excellent site on the house (click here to view) and unfortunately despite his best efforts, the appeals to have an historic assessment of the house carried out has fallen on deaf ears and the application to demolish the house has been approved.
