I am not emotionally engaged enough on this issue to this building to fight on it. I am a huge proponent of adaptive reuse when it makes sense and the figures don't outweigh the alternative ie tearing it down. Beyond asking them to consider this, which they have heard by now, I am not going to push further.
What I find disturbing about the issue is the random relocation of the complex by people commenting. Over 45,000 people visiting next to a major transport hub (current and future), next to a dying mall that could use a daily influx of people passing by and a public health department directly across from city hall.
Studies show these types of developments can be successfully leveraged to revitalize a downtown core all on their own.
Taken to an extreme, isn't this another form of NIMBYism that so many complain about with other issues in this city?
