Walking around downtown Regina the other day, I started wondering which building among those that are currently vacant had been empty the longest. Pictured above is my nominee. It’s on the south side of 24-block 11th Ave. The name plate at the top identifies it as the Yaeger Block and says it was built in 1926.
I remember a funky restaurant/club being located there for a short time in the early to mid 1990s (called Soul Food, maybe?). But since it closed I’m pretty sure the building’s been empty. So that would be around 20 years.
If you have another nominee you’d like to put forward, feel free to enter it in the comments section.
