    I like the lifesaver version of the facade but as a tenant I'd hope he keeps the huge windows that were underneath it. very attractive

    I was worried for a moment that they were going to be knocking down a nice piece of architecture, but then I pulled up the streetview:
    Google Maps

    Still, someone should salvage that nice cornice.

    I wonder if MJL bought Rye bread's old building and got them to move out to demo the old building. just a thought since it says the building sold

    Don't leap to conclusions like that. Often bringing a building like that back is very doable.

    urgent care would be a great addition to the neighborhood IMO...depending. I have not been to the one on fairmount since it gets bad reviews but the Jefferson one downtown is really nice
