What I would like to see, if this building, and the buildings next to it up to Cheapies (basically stopping short of the point where the buildings level off and share the same basic height and actually have a degree of uniformity) get a wrecking ball, and the site replaced with something similar to the Terraces on King in International village, with larger condo units and a bit more architectural flair.

Not only would this add density, remove what are fundamentally a set of stucco & rotting brick boxes, take out another decaying surface parking lot, offer ground level storefronts for new businesses, compliment the brick of the neighboring Right House and King William St and more people living downtown in view of Gore Park, the Right House and the shape concrete, old buildings on King William.

However that involves demolishing a building, so that of course makes it completely unacceptable.

Regardless of what goes in, or what gets preserved, I would like to see the site built up, not just reused.
