I know I am gonna stand alone here at RTH, but I think there is a case to be made for bulldozing a set of awful buildings.

Those buildings are not contributing to quality of life in that area. I used to live in that area of Brantford and there is very little architectural significance to those buildings; grass, a park, just about anything would be better than what is there now.

In Hamilton, we bulldozed the beautiful city hall and other many architecturally significant buildings but save the Lister Block (ugly, closed-faced and decrepit in my opinion. I likely stand alone on RTH).

There are buildings worth being saved, but I think at times there seems to be a gang mentality with these old buildings and it always seems to be one way or the other; not reasonably sorted out based on the evidence of necessity.

It is possible that these particular buildings are better off as grass.
