Look, you take the good with the bad. Getting rid of that ugly brick box on the corner with the parking next to the sidewalk can only be a good thing. So not everything you like gets saved in the real world. I think that's a more than fair trade-off. We do not live in a museum, and developers are not charities.

So what you are telling me is that there are no architects who can somehow incorporate even elements of this row of Victorians into a new structure? That's too bad, I thought they were capable of more creative and innovative ideas than some strange Legoland-type concrete and glass structure. I'm sorely disappointed in the profession as a whole.
