GOODBYE: TPI House will be demolished.

NEWCASTLE council has accepted a $181,830 bid from Husky Demolition Pty Ltd to demolish TPI House.

The bid was accepted in a closed council meeting last Tuesday.

The building, which has stood since 1923, is across from the University of Newcastle's City Campus and Civic Park.

The council had previously indicated it wanted to subdivide the block to allow for future road widening or a cycleway and would call for expressions of interest to buy the land.
