Update on the Jensen-Byrd building and plans to demolish it (see earlier story).

The City of Spokane's Hearing Examiner's office has postponed today's scheduled hearing, which was to hear an appeal by opponents of Campus Advantage, the Texas firm planning to tear down the structure and replace it with modern student housing. The opponents, Spokane Preservation Advocates, contend the issuance of the demolition permit is not valid.

The advocates filed the appeal earlier this year. This week the group and Campus Advantage agreed to postpone the hearing until Oct. 17, at 9 a.m.  Until the hearing is held, Campus Advantage cannot move forward with plans to tear down the industrial warehouse, which has been unused for several years.
