They should tear it down and turn the space into a park.

You hate to see a historic building like this destroyed, but I'm guessing that the cost of doing anything (like turning it into a mall, for example) is prohibitive compared with the cost of simply blowing it up and using the land for another purpose. As far as stadium's go, we don't really need another one.

Yeah at this point anything they do would be better than just letting sit. I think they should have utilized the building as is instead of just letting it fall apart. Come on this is houston , no problem tearing something down even if it has history and for no good reason.
