So glad you chimed in Gary. Anyone familiar with the buildings you've helped rehab on James N should know that these Gore Park buildings are not only salvageable but can be beautiful again.

If these buildings are so far beyond hope, how was a well-known architectural firm operating there until last month (and only left because the lease ended)?

I love the Blanchard line that they are 'too narrow for any modern use'.

Really??? Just so happens many of my favourite places are in buildings 'too narrow for modern use'.

I could post stuff all night. The point is, the buildings are completely able to be restored, and downtown isn't Waterdown. There is ample good use for narrow, skinny storefronts.
