Great article, and great architect. Drew- I for one, am itching for a great indie coffee shop on Barton Street. Can't wait to see it happen.

The usual suspects will scream and yell and fill our twitter feeds when the plans for James St Baptist are released, but I like the sound of what Drew is saying - modern mixed with the heritage aspects of the building. Economically this is necessary to restore old churches like this as we've seen in many other cities. They simply aren't viable as huge, open buildings designed for church use anymore. I could picture a condo tower soaring from the centre of the building or on one side. Will be interesting to watch this great landmark brought back to life.
