A 2011 article says the site will become “green space.”  I doubt it’ll be quality park space, just a green-ish rectangle.

    This demolition seems very silly. Why not convert this into senior citizen apartments?

    • The building I show in rubble from 2007 was senior apartments. After they moved across the street into a new building the old was razed.

      I’ve been in the building currently being razed, it wasn’t great.

      • Benjamin Aronov says:

        Ya but with so many developers building new senior residential in the city, you’d think this building could be remodeled for a couple million into a very nice facility.
