I would be thrilled to see the front half of the building used as part of a new development.

A few notes:

  • If this was indeed the grand plan, where was the press release? How about some on site renderings? Or any public information from the developer? Why was the public treated to months of silence followed immediately by a wrecking crew?

  • If this is the true plan, is there any way the developer can be held to it? We have seen the story too many times: sell residents/council on a nice pretty rendering, get the zoning you need, then change course to do "the economy" or some other "external factor".

The city needs to cover their ass - and in effect cover all of our asses - and ensure that the wool is not being pulled over our eyes here... A dose of skepticism can be healthy, especially when dealing with a developer who shows a strong track record of parking lot creation.
