You can be as nostalgic as you want for Centennial Mills and its rows of rotting pilings stuck into the mud, but there's no way on earth that structure is going to survive even a modest earthquake- between liquefaction and bank collapse, it's going to disappear like Atlantis even with a 5.4 or a 6.2 on a local fault.

Any money spent on it would be better spent elsewhere, such as repurposing Memorial Coliseum or seismic refitting unreinforced brick buildings in Old Town.
