There are many developers with a vision of success and their own money who are investing in the downtown core and fixing up old buildings. Mixed Media was one of the first, Hamilton Bike Hounds and Treble Hall can be added to that list, along with numerous others who I don't know/can't recall names of.

People have offered to buy these buildings and restore them to utiltiy, and Blancahrd has flatly rejected their offers because he has dreams of a mega-development.

Oh, by the way, you do know that development is not imminent right? He has no concrete plans (he'd like it to be a condo, but it probably won't be, or so his partner says), and he has no funding, no investors, not even a design or a start date on the groundbreaking.

But by all means, let's let him tear down these buildings in the meantime, maybe he can use them for surface parking for another ten plus years, like he has done with his long on James, beside the landed banking & loan building, and see what he develops, eventually.
