I don't have a sufficiently informed opinion as to 're-development', but I will say this: I've been in this building on many occasions.

It's boring.

There is no element to it that even hints at a larger value than functional brick construction.

As I've said in the past, the problem in Hamilton isn't so much the buildings we knock down...it's that nothing of note is ever built in the wake of demolition. To wit: Can anyone name three buildings built over the past two decades that you smile at when passing? Or even one you'd be inclined to share with someone from outside the city? (The assumption here being a level of architectural appreciation on the friend's part.)

If wonderful buildings were being consistently build in the city, I doubt there'd be the (well-intentioned) declaiming that's so common on this site.
