Capitalist, LIUNA knew it was getting a historic heritage building when they bought it. Stop feeling sorry for them. You seem to be completely against gov't aid to these developers. So am I. And so is the city. but LIUNA is holding Lister over the city's head because they know of its historical and emotional value to the community, and they know that it won't go down without a fight. This is akin to blackmail and I for one am sick of it.

If you are going to call out a culprit, call out the right one. The current state of affairs is almost 100% LIUNA's fault. For all we know, the higher price tag for renovations is due partly to the more recent withering of the building which has gone on completely due to LIUNA's lack of maintenance of their own property. None of the rest of us left the building open to the elements for the last few years, LIUNA did! If Lister is such a burden on them, then why don't they put it up for sale? I'll tell you why they don't: GREED. I'm sure some TRUE capitalist developers would be chomping at the bit to get their hands on it for fair market value and turn it into a moneymaking machine. Stinson showed an interest in it and was told sternly that it's not for sale.
