    Why is this even an issue? There's not much left of the original building.

    BBB really went to town on it when they installed their office there in the 90s. Interestingly many details for subsequent BBB projects were first tried there on a 'test-run' basis. The 4th floor interior is quite a po-mo tour-de-force.

    Is that a problem? Strip off the gunk and reinterpret the brickwork as a facade.

    Unsurprising to me. The building has lost some of it's tenents over the past few years and haven't been able to replace them probably due to costly renovation work (utilities) being necessary.

    If the building is preserved, the inside must be gutted.

    Clearly I don't see a problem with redeveloping the building. I'm fine with the brickwork being rebuilt as a base providing it also compliments the development. Right now, the design is in the cloud.

    That looks like it would compliment 19 Duncan quite nicely

    There you go! Peoples fears have been alleviated.

    This has potential to be an example of facadectomy done right.
