Someone mentioned that during OpenDoors, it was stated that they may reuse part of the interior in the new design, with a glass exterior. Imagine walking through the glass doors, to find this whole other building inside of it. The glass structure is wall to wall Main to Bay to King to AGH, but inside the old Board building in all it's glory, still exists like a world within a world.

A walkway travels overtop of the old board building in the front and back, with the glass structure itself continuing up many more stories. Those walking over these overpassing's get an aerial view of the historic building as they travel across to meetings and such.

The building is now a street wall like we love about Lister. The glass is transparent enough to faintly see the outline of the old Board building during the day but at night, wow. People come downtown to stair through the glass and admire how the old illuminates through the new.
