I'll go with the unpopular comment and say preserve the statue on the west side of the building and the entryway mural and knock the rest of it down. It looks like a poorly maintained grotesque mockery of a stack of harmonicas. I'd much rather see an increase in students in the core to add further density, and a new, modern facility go up then to see another excessively budgeted preservation project for a building that adds little to the core. There are simply larger, and nicer buildings we should be focusing on, with the Royal Connaught being the most blatantly obvious one, and reworking the convention center into something more then the brick box it currently looks like being another one.

However, an even better solution would be to wipe out the mass of surface parking at John, Hughson, Wilson and Rebecca and put the facility there, or bulldoze that awful Bingo Hall.
