It's funny you say that ... I was sitting there the other day by the fountain. Looking at the old building. In my imagination I transposed a european culture over this setting. The building was packed with people catching frequent train service to TO or Niagara; a decent coffee shop and variety store inside; an efficient multi-level parking off to one side; bike racks in front stuffed with bikes; tram going by on James N; walking past Wild Orchid having supper on the way home from work; kids playing on a swingset on a nice park/plaza out front ... I wanted to cry at the beauty of what was possible.

You just poured cold water on me ... the vision is probably to bulldoze half that neighborhood for seventy thousand ground level parking spots. Now I want to cry over what they will probably do :)
