That's a fairly depressing way to start the morning in particular the talk of the amount of wood in the structure. 160 will be a fantastic addition to the city and waving good bye to the parking lot is a positive, but man we are going to miss these buildings when they are gone. We should have a policy like trees that for every old heritage building that gets pulled down, there would be three renovated and protected.
It is a little unfortunate - and one wonder if retention along the lines of QRC West is possible. Having said that, at least the replacement is worthy.
