Converting permanently to city hall is city centre's only chance at becoming anything other than what it is now. We can wish all we want for a mixed use development there but all the wishing in the world is not going to change the fact that once the city leaves, it's going to be an empty wasteland for years to come. Why would a condo developer build atop this existing building when there is a never ending supply of already-cleared prime land being used as parking lots within a 2 block radius?

It's not about the distance walking to the honest lawyer, it's about putting city hall back to the true centre of the city where people already gather - as opposed to forcing people to treat a renovated forecourt at 71 main west as a new "centre" (which is pure fantasy).
