An intriguing idea, and one I frankly hadn't considered. What say y'all? Maybe a permanent home for the ASO?

Everything old is new again, as the song goes.

Kill it with fire. That entire block is ugly garbage. Not all history is worth preserving.

Townhome development in its place. Medium housing.

I am okay with remodeling it. Bring in a top flight acoustical engineer to get the sound right. I also agree with cq that it would help to finish breaking up the superblock.

Bingo!

Not everything old is worth preserving. And its a poor use of prime land.

I don't think any African Americans live in the Civic Center.

That's funny because your comment on Curbed is "Tear it down!"

I could go with this. I really need to take a good look at at the ACC again before passing judgment, though.
