You can't compare the Lister Block to these buildings. The Lister Block is a concrete construction, therefore much easier to renovate, whereas these buildings along the Gore are of wood construction. Also, the Lister Block ended up costing a mere $30 million of Governemnt money to make it the space that is there today. This is why it would be "unrealistic" to retain these buildings by private investment. I am looking forward to a new development that hopefully can mimic some of the old one, while adding some modern elements.
