    This is a nice looking building. But I would like to please demand a turret to replace the old turret. Lol

    • Couldn’t agree more. The new building looks like a solid replacement but I demand a citywide turret-for-turret scheme!

  2. Bump up another story and re-add that ground-floor commercial

    Is it for sale? If so, when? I’m interested.
