You just tied the word sustainability to the completely unsustainable mindset of our Throw-Away Generation. Sustainability means avoiding unnecessary production. New buildings on Gore Park will not only see the destruction of these current buildings but the destruction of the planet as we extract materials to build with, and pollution of the planet as we manufacture the new buildings. And most new buildings are designed to last for 30 to 50 years, the buildings that are there now have been standing for over 150 years and will stand for another 150 if their owners would take responsibility for them (statements about them being structurally unsound are patently absurd). There is no definition of ‘sustainability’ that can justify this demolition.
