This is standard operating procedure for a number of our government organizations. At a time when the city is desperate for housing for the chronically homeless, the city is allowing several cottage-style buildings (and a fantastic church) to rot away on the Lakeshore campus. Motive is not hard to figure -- if the buildings fall apart, ball fields can be built which will create a buffer zone so that well-to-do neighborhood residents need never fear that people who are homeless find a place to live near the too-tony-to-care.
The U of T is allowing the Williams mansion to rot because they don't know what to do with it and don't want to do the things with it that Ms. Eugenia wanted done. Motive: property is more valuable without the house.
Actually, the school system has more justification than the agencies above -- school buildings can be tremendously difficult to repurpose. The Lakeshore cottages could be used easily for the homeless with basic renovations.
