... News flash dude, about over half of preservation projects in major cities are all about mantaining the shell or recreating it. The sad fact is that most people don't really give a crap on the interior of a historic building if it isn't properly maintained. By the time somebody does give a crap, the expenses of renovating the interior completely; from adding safety requirements to making it look all fancy and new, it's just too much to pay for. If the building is too far run-down and too far gone, it would be better economically if it gets demolished.

a shame really, it was probably not possible to build around it or safely incorporate it into the new tower.
I like the new design, but then I would prefer to see it built somewhere else.

What the ****. It shouldn't have been pulled down in the first place and to add insult to injury, they reconstruct it? I mean, I hate facadism, but even that would have been better than this.

Hope E&Y are happy...
