Amazing! What a concept - creatively re-using an existing - and older building - rather than tearing it down and replacing it with some contentious bit of modernity. Not only is the building saved (reuse = eco-friendly) but the neighborhood keeps some social/cultural context rather than the cultural whitewashing that occurs all too often in this city. I liked the part of the article where they mention the owner driving around and imagining how other buildings could be reused. I wish more developers had that sort of integrity and imagination. Also, Every landlord in the city should be required to use that soundproofing wallboard when renting to budding rock stars.
