Honestly, I don't really care about what minor historical act occurred at a building to declare it "historical", for me it's more about the architecture. The architecture of these facades is worth considering, maybe worth saving... but the developer has some really good things planned for the space, and is willing to save the facades if the city helps him. As far as I'm concerned, he's doing most of this stuff right. As long as he presents something inviting to Gore, I'm happy... although I'd rather if he sectioned it up and made some smaller retail spaces facing out to Gore too.

I gotta disagree about Commerce Place though - while the building is one of the better-looking examples of the Giant Block of Glass style, for me it fails from a functional perspective since it provides nothing at street level. There's an irony in that the Commerce Place doesn't have any commercial frontage.
