Look at the properties on the Beacon site,.... plaza probably from 1940s, with AsianLegend, bubble tea place, Japanese place, clothing place,... tenant revovate interior as they wish as it could benefit their business as they operate. But landlord doesn't care. Former McDonalds probably built in 1970s that closed down and became Century21 real estate office - exterior looks the same, only interior was partition to more office like setting. Former youth centre ? in old building from 1920s,... most of these properties saw little or no exterior renovation especially in the last 20 years,... other than for store branding,... any money spent on renovation would have been wasted because developer would have paid the same for property,... developer just want the land,... they don't care about the condition of building on property,... they'll demolish them to build their own.
