Time Lapse Video: Building Being Demolished

December 20, 2014

Work took place today [Dec 20] to demolish a building on Middle Road in Southampton, and the video below shows hours of work taking place, all condensed into a two-minute time lapse video.

A police spokesperson previously said, “Motorists are advised to avoid Middle Road between Camp Hill and Lighthouse Road in Southampton between 7am – 9am on Saturday as work is going on to demolish a dwelling.

“It is recommended that eastbound traffic use South Road. We would like to take this time to thank the motoring public for their patience and cooperation.”

    Thank you Jason and Bernews for providing this. One eyesore down, so many more to go. Does one have to have planning permission ie: plans for something to go in its place before the building can be torn down? ClayHouse and the old hotel on Reid Street come to mind.

      One does not need to have plans approved for a new building before the old building is removed unless is is part of the permit.IE DEMO OLD CONSTRUCT NEW.However some persons do have a plan(s) for a site beforehand.Not sure in this case.One thing for sure is that piece of road is safer now than before.Great job Island Construction.

  3. Bernews it would be nice if you could do a follow up on this story and give it’s back ground history, i am not got all the information but this use to be one of our theaters back in the day, and the whites grocery stores, I believe their proprietors first began in that building, and I think that building was a part or the Raynors empire.

    Raynors Hall, back in the day one of the private movie theatres. I see the Raynor descendants are going to do something with this property. It was so sad to see it so derelict. More power to the Raynor Family.

  5. it’s about time as this was LOOONNGG overdo :) :)

  6. demolished says:

    Next ..the building before the Marketplace and opposite Arnolds in Somerset – its a hazard and an eyesore.

    I have met a lot of Raynors in my time…. and they are a fantastic family….

    To Shari-Lynn Pringles: I observe your comments on FB and social networks, regarding derelict buildings and houses, I can’t help but wonder why you put so much emphasis on something which don’t directly concern you. Why do you contuniously degrade these properties which obviously probably have family issues hence why they stand untouched. Here’s a suggestion for you: call the families and tell them that you will pay for demolition or renovations. Until then, keep your nose out of other people’s properties!!!!
