Looks like consent for demolition has been given previously - so I strongly suspect it's goodbye to yet another listed building from the Buildings at Risk register.
The recent condition/planning history of the building is really shocking and , let's face it not untypical of the way we allow such buildings to be treated . We need proper protection and enforcement for, at the very least, A and B listed buildings.

Development History
November 2007: External inspection reveals the building to be derelict. A number of windows are broken and some are boarded-over. There is significant foliage growth in the rainwater goods.April 2009: A site visit finds a marked deterioration since the previous inspection. Many more windows are broken, allowing water ingress. Plant growth covers a wider area and the gutters are choked.
July 2009: A member of the public contacts SCT to advise a Residential development(Jewitt Arschavir & Wilkie Architects)is proposing flatted development behind a retained facade with new build extension. Local planners confirm permissions lodged as 09/01421/DC and 09/01422/LBA.

December 2010:
External inspection finds since our previous visit the building has deteriorated further. More windows are broken, some of the boarding has been damaged and graffiti is appearing in a number of places.
June 2011: A member of the public advises that there are steel fences set up on the pavement in front of the building and the general condition has deteriorated with most glazing now gone and pigeons very much in evidence. The architects for the proposed development of the building advise planning permission and listed building consent have been secured, but the development has no formal start date at this time.
25 June 2012: A member of the public advises takings down at the site have been underway.
9 July 2012: Local planners report the City's Development Management team are in discussions with the building's developers regarding the methodology for downtakings and subsequent rebuilding. The developers have reported a structural problem with the main facade which may require complete downtakings and re-instatement using any salvageable stonework. Works on site have been halted at this time.
16 April 2013: A member of the public advises the building's new owner is understood to wish to proceed with the conversion to flats once the technical issues with the retention of the facade have been resolved.
14 August 2013: External inspection finds the top floor appears to be open to the elements. Wallhead has collapsed in place. Protective coverings to exposed areas are ruinous. Condition moved to Very Poor and Risk to High.
18 February 2016: Demolition of the building is being sought ref: 15/02654/DC.9 June 2016: Local planners note consent for demolition was approved ref: 15/02654/DC.
