Demised Premise?


A few years ago, when Meg had a short stint at a lawyer's office, she had to work on a document dealing with a "demised premise" at this address. The pharmacy is under new management, the building looks ok; it must have been coded legalese.

The Ginko leaves were painted recently.

Post Script: Today, August 16, I went to see this building after Ben's photo turned out so well. The ginko leaves were, in fact, not painted, but are what I can only describe as huge stickers. Worse, the top part of the left leaf is starting to peel off just a little bit. It's not going to be able to withstand the coming Nelson summer sun. Pity.

  1. What is a demised premise? I really like the ginko leaves on the side of the building--they really did a good job, but should have painted a few more.

  2. Cristina, the document was talking about either the property or the lease changing hands, and kept mentioning this one hand basin, so I kept picturing in my mind this tiny free-standing sink in the middle of a demolished building site, like sometimes you see in pictures from a war zone? I got curious because I knew the building was still there, so I asked the lawyer working on the case (who must have been 20 years my junior) and she said it means, "building".

  8. Yes, Alaya, or new stickers every years. Seems such a waste.

  10. Hello, Kostas. Nice, isn't it? (Maybe Ben can go back there in the autum and photograph the sticker peeling.)

  11. That IS too bad, ginko leaves are such a pleasing shape. maybe someone needs to help them out and graffiti them onto the building permanently.
