Exactly. I'm not really enamored with those particular buildings. I know the heritage is important to some, but I could live without them if we saw something awesome going in its place.

If we knew that as soon as the dust was settled we'd see a big condo-tower going up with similar small storefronts facing into the Gore, maintaining a proper street-wall for the pedestrian plaza?

Well, I'd prefer restored facades, but I could live with that.

But realistically, that's not going to happen. The buildings will get demolished and stay demolished for quite some time, while the developer tries to finagle the best deal for the remaining structures on the block and courts clients. And that could take a decade. The heart of our city sporting a big empty crater.
