The Cottage Life folks made the same mistake that the Pearl Company made: they actually tried to work with the city above board, thus putting themselves on the city's radar and bringing 'to-the-letter' enforcement down on themselves. Building owners who practise demolition by neglect, do shoddy renos, or thumb their noses at the sign bylaw are going about their business without the benefit of permits, and since there is no proactive enforcement they get away with it. These kind of double standards do far more to dampen investment than any architectural review board would.
