I personally love these old buildings but I also recognize you can't stop progress. This building will now be turned into a parking lot for at least two years. New owners have eyes on developing a boutique hotel/restaurant in couple of years.
Too bad no affordable residential development is being planned instead. This property was owned by the city and recently auctioned off for the amount of 3 million. My guess is with the way parking rates have been going up, they should be able to recoup their entire investment within a year. Am I right? $25 bucks to park is nuts!!
