I also wouldn't miss Lister if it was replaced with a better building. NOT A REPLICATE. By better I mean something with landmark status and architectural significance -- ie something we'd fight to save in 100 years.

Judging by what gets built as replacements -- if something gets built and its not another parking lot -- kit buildings such as the Federal Building and Staybridge Suites, I fear what would replace it. No is going to be fighting to save Staybridge Suites at the end of its lifetime in 40 years.

Make Lister into Condos, we have too much vacant office space already. Build a highrise in the back void of the building to get an economy scale and use the bottom 5 floors for a parkade. It's possible and it would be successful only it requires private investment dollarsmoney, not tax dollars and sweetheart government lease deals.
