There's some kind of fencing being erected west of the Terrace Building. I'll need a closer look soon.

Honestly, if it ends up a gravel parking lot for a little while it wouldn't be worst thing
That's the kind of thinking that created the downtown of empty lots we have now. It's not the building that's the problem, it's how little it's been taken care of, and the businesses that have been located there. It takes effort and care to reverse a buildings trajectory but it can be done.

We need investment into buildings like this, not destruction. The same thing could have been said for the crash hotel or many of beljans projects, and what's there now is much better than anything that would have come from demolishing them. Many of those renovated buildings weren't particular special, but they have a scale and character that is hard to replicate today.

Unfortunately, we don't have enough developers in the city who are willing to restore/renew buildings.
