Waterford City and County Council will decide the fate of an iconic building this evening (Monday).
The Hennebique designed flour mill is the only structure left standing on the North Quays.
However, it is facing demolition to make way for the 300 million euro Al Hokair development.
The nine storey, ten bay reinforced concrete warehouse was built in 1905 and is rated as nationally
important by the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage.
It was only the second such building erected in the island of Ireland.
A preservation order was placed on the mill however it has proven difficult to find a suitable function for the building within the new North Quays development.
The Local Authority put forward a proposal for its demolition last year and members of the public had until November 30th to make submisions.
A special meeting of Waterford City and County Council will take place on Monday and members will vote on whether the demolition will be allowed to proceed or not.
