The site before construction. I've no doubt someone complained that the city was tearing down its heritage, its supply of modest, human-scaled buildings, to big build soulless towers. The buildings down the street would survive into the 90s, and the facade of the samllest one caught in the middle would be preserved and grafted to a parking ramp. But that's another site.

Note the name of the clothes-cleaning store: Radio Cleaners! It makes no sense today, and it made no sense then. It was like RKO Radio Pictures or Radio Flyer wagons. "Radio" meant "Modern," just as "cyber" did in the 90s.

"Radio" has aged better, I think.
