I'm actually glad to hear that. new roofs at least keep the structures from falling down for now, though it sounds like some undesirables profited . The roof is the most important part of a building, after all.

Along with the foundation, the walls, and the doors and windows.

Naw, you are pointing out minor details. If the roof collapses the rest is worth nothing. Of course maybe the reverse is also true.

Yep! I have high hopes for that particular neighborhood.

A Valet lot too!?? I mean this isn't as good a house as others but again, totally wasteful.

"Razed for a temporary valet parking lot for The Christ Hospital, made necessary due to the hospital's $265M expansion. The expansion project includes a new 332,000-square-foot orthopaedic and spine center, a new materials management building, and a 900-space visitor parking garage. This is a likely future redevelopment site."

You do understand that valet parking for a hospital and valet parking for a restaurant are not there for the same reasons.

Hospital valet parking, anyhow in our area, primarily gives people with medical conditions an opportunity to get out of their vehicle at the door and not have to struggle to get in from all points in a parking lot where many times "idiots" behind the wheel are racing to find themselves the most convenient spot.

I see the reason for this is for a place to park while their addition (Medical/surgical AND parking) is constructed. I can just hear the complaining that would occur if they didn't make arrangements to accommodate patients and visitors while undergoing construction.

It also says that the property will likely be redeveloped when construction is finished. It's entirely possible that the new may be at least as beneficial to the neighborhood as the old.

Your arguments are just too logical. You miss the point they demolished some old building to permit this large expansion to happen. No matter what, that is sacrilege. Never mind the extreme value of the hospital to the City.

Fair enough here. Pretty sound argument for this particular lot - still frustrated about the overall issue.
