I'd be perfectly fine with the parking structure if the facade was nice and there was something tangible facing Gore.

Let's face it, at this point the old buildings are nothing but a facade. The upper floors are boarded up. All we have left of those buildings is the cosmetic feature of the facing - from a functional perspective? When it has parking out front it's effectively a strip-mall - a single-floor building with a drive-through parking lot out front.

As much as I love the appearance of these buildings and loathe the stucco of modern construction, I'll take development first. The only thing I wouldn't compromise on is that a business can't moon Gore Park. I don't care if the city needs the carrot or the stick to get that done, but I just don't want to see the kind of backwards streetwall like we have at Centre Mall on Barton.
