I was fine with the proposal to demolish this building when the plan was to build a Victorian replica that matches the streetwall, and would have been one of two major entrances to a grocery store and large mixed-use complex on the empty lot behind it. Scroll through the images here:

That plan was killed by Public Health moving to the 'Education Square' proposal back in the day, which then turned into the scaled down McMaster Downtown Campus with public health ending up??? I think in the Right House? Lister? If anyone knows for sure where public health is ending up after all is said done, pass it on.

But to propose demolishing a piece of this streetwall for an ugly parkette makes no sense IMO.
