Photos & Video: Albert Row Demolition Underway

February 11, 2021 | 8 Comments

Demolition work is now underway at the Albert Row building in Sandys, with crews on site at the Malabar Road location.

The west end property was a Grade 2 listed building, however in October of last year the Government notices stated that the building would be ‘delisted as a ‘building of special architectural or historical interest.’

Back in 2019, WEDCO said, “For more than 15 years WEDCO has been searching both internally and externally for a solution which would see the restoration of Albert Row.

“All interested parties, and there have been many, come to the same conclusion, which is that to bring this site to modern day code would cost in excess of $10 million and is simply not a financially viable project.”

    It should have brought down many,many years ago!
    It was an eyesore and remmants of a bygone era.

    Time and Tides wait for No Man and Bermuda needs to learn that or flounder like beached whales.

    • Portia says:

      No, they needed to be preserved and taken care of, Wedco neglected the houses for many years, the Bermudian working class families who lived there deserved better. Those houses stood the test of time.

      You can go out with the tide if you want, but if Bermuda doesn’t start paying attention to what is going on, and if we don’t start respecting our foundations and our people, the country is in trouble.

    So glad they salvaged that Bermuda Stone.

  3. Y-Gurl says:

    Been a long time coming, a community lost I agree but no one deserved to live there in recent years

  4. frustrated says:

    Those “bygone eras” are what make Bermuda special. Destroy your history, you destroy your future.

    Perhaps we should tear down the lighthouse? The Hamilton Princess? Dockyard?

  5. Kandra says:

    I Agree that “You Should Have Never Ever Destroyed any Historical Landmark in Bermuda. Especially since those Houses have withstood the test of Time . Not to Mention Every single Hurricane that has ever Hit the Island? Give Me a Break! I’m Sooo Disappointed in The Government for allowing them to Destroy Them!
