Every city has them. Spaces. Sometimes it’s a building or a warehouse. Other times it’s a street or an entire neighbourhood. And everyday, people drive by them, look out their window and say, “You know what? Somebody ought to do something with that. It could be beautiful. There’s so much potential for apartments or lofts or offices or anything. It’s too bad it’s just sitting there, wasting away. Somebody really ought to do something about that.”
The buildings and neighbourhoods are yours. It doesn’t matter whose name is on the deed or what’s been zoned for what. They were built and created for people like you to live in, work in, learn from, and discover. We don’t think it was anyone’s intention to plan something and never have it happen. Or to build something only to have it sit vacant deteriorating for decades.
Before the retail district. Before the empty-nesters. Before the law firms. Before the jazz bars. Before the young professionals. Before the advertising agencies. Before the art galleries. Before the coffee houses. Before the artists. Before the starving artists. Before all of that is CityspaceCityspace
