The recent history of this prominent edifice has all the signs of deliberate intent to permit decay and dilapidation thereby arriving at the inevitable conclusion that it`s gone too far and is declared unsafe, so hence the demolition. I am unaware of the status of a planning application ( if any) to develop this site, but it seems to me that in any dev. proposal for this site, the retention of the front facade should have been a condition of any grant of planning permission. While never having been inside I can imagine that the structur was probably cellular and impractical for remodelling.
