I read that earlier this morning myself.
If that is the building i think it is.....i do not see it serving well as a park.....perhaps a small plaza though. However, I would much rather see it converted into apts/condos or even cheap office space. I am sure the parking could be remedied somehow. I know that there are many plaqued properties in DT and I am a huge proponent for parks, plazas, fountains, etc.......however i am not a fan of tearing down every vacant building in the city. To me, DT is not dense enough......and tearing down building after building just makes it worse.
then again what do i know?
