Potential Demolition in Irvington

Recently, the demolition delay process began on a multi-unit building located at 1510 NE Hancock. The onetime Salvation Army Home for Unwed Mothers is slated for demolition on July 30th unless another solution can be reached. The only reason there is such a delay is because the building is a contributing structure in the Irvington Conservation district. The potential demolition is disappointing given that the building is considered contributing to the district and because Irvington is on the cusp of becoming a National Register Historic District. There is some great information about Irvington on the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office website. Check it out.
