When viewing the photo tour I couldn't help but think of the difference it would make in Hamilton if we were doing residential conversions of historic buildings at the rate they are in Pittsburgh. The comparison with Detroit is apt: the so-called "renaissance" there is really superficial... shiny offices that are only occupied M-F 9-5 contribute nothing to the health and vibrancy of a downtown. The Lister Block comes to mind immediately... while I'm glad it won't continue its decay, it is so much better suited for residential conversion, and would contribute so much more to the revival of downtown. They seem to have that figured out in Pittsburgh.
