    I don't understand why setbacks aren't required on all sides. This is going to feel huge on the Alexander side.

    I completely agree. The building could have been saved twenty years ago but now you'd have to take it apart and reassemble it because it's in a slow state of collapse.

    The new fine food store is great, a good addition to the street. I think they will do well.
