No Richfield tower? San Francisco's original City Hall? The Ambassador Hotel? So many better examples.

Speaking of The Richfield Tower, could you imagine if it were still here, currently being renovated in the midst of this boom (since it more than likely would've followed suit with the rest of downtown over the years), to its original black and gold majesty. It would be amazing to see it in real life. In color.
For sure. In fact if Richfield Tower, The Philharmonic Auditorium, and the Paramount Theater weren't torn down needlessly I think DTLA's rebirth wouldve started earlier like the rest of the nations downtowns. Then we'd be in a much better spot retail wise since we wouldve secured tenants just before Amazon and other companies started wiping them out.
