Why the fuss over nothing?

I understand the building is a part of Wilmington history. To that fact, every "building" in the city is. However, this building has absolutely no architechtural significance. It is a simple, common red brick, block style building with aluminum windows. The HVAC system is extremely antiquated, very poor building insulation, out of date electrical, plumbing and sewer appointments. Asbestos was used for piping/HVAC insulation during the buildings construction era, all harmless unless disrupted. EPA guidelines and methods will dictate safe and effective removal of any HazMat during decommissioning. The new building will be much more of a true architectural accomplishment. For those of you that want to compare this drab, faceless building to those of Charleston know very little of history or architecture. Memories are one thing, but true building quality, construction and stature are another. It just isn't here with this one....
