Binning Sale Blocked
The potential sale of the Binning house has been blocked, in a ruling from the B.C. Supreme Court.
Among other reasons, Justice Shelley Fitzpatrick ruled that TLC must demonstrate efforts to find a suitable trustee for the house before any possible sale could be considered.
It's a (temporary) win for the preservation community and a chance to find a suitable long term solution for one of the most important modernist houses in the country.
