Matt,

Thank you for re-introducing the ideas I wrote about in West Harbour: The Three R's. You've been an advocate for the area for so long and I'm thrilled to have the 'Jelly' brand now attached to the Rheem building! Now that the smoke from the stadium wars has cleared the battlefield I think people will be able to see the amazing potential of the West Harbour.

The Rheem building does appear to have many columns. From looking at the picture I suspect that many of them are there to support the very demanding live loads of cranes, not the relatively light requirements of structural and snow loading. A structural engineer would be easily able to determine what columns and girders can be removed or moved since crane loading is no longer present.

It is still my dream that a serious study of bio-remediation be done for the West Harbour lands.
