I like the idea of a 6 storey addition behind the current Board building. Whether it's Mac or the Board who builds it I could care less. Just to throw another thought into the discussion, a new office building is being built in Toronto's waterfront:

I could certainly live with an 8 storey building designed by a great architect with a cafe and waterfront restaurant at our WH. However, as Graham has pointed out, the school board showed the type of imagination usually displayed by Walmart and Zellers when it unveiled plans for their new HQ on the Mountain. A big box surrounded by a parking lot. The city owns WH land and needs to ensure that any development going there is among the most urbane, ped-friendly, attractive and multi-use as possible.
