    I would like to ask about 'however'.

    Hi, teachers. Could you please take a look at this sentence below?
    Is 'however' in the sentence fine?

    Thank you ^^

    Hundreds of residents signed a petition in order
    to save the historic building, but unfortunately
    the structure was demolished , however.

    No, you've already used 'but'. You could remove 'but' and put 'however' there, or you could simply remove 'however'.

    If you removed but and started a new sentence with unfortunately, it would be OK, though it would be better if you started the sentence with however..
