Downtown is going in a few different directions and its interesting seeing the many different projects happening right now. I personally would never hang out in a place like the one being proposed in the old Regal Hotel location. Not my vibe - but it will appeal to a segment of the population - but aren't there already a handful of those kinds of places all over the city right now? What was wrong with utilizing some aspects of the heritage that was still apparent in that building?

Everything looks so "temporary" there. They just covered over perfectly fine window openings that would've helped with the very apparent lack of interesting streetwall on that stretch. I wish some of our very eager business owners and developers would go and visit other cities close by like Guelph and even Brantford to see how heritage can be incorporated into new and modern ideas.
