This pic is from earlier today. Now that the Chromium building is down the poor condition of the Conti building (especially the back) is in full view of the river walk and the newer part of Canal.
You can't put a new parking lot in and expand the river walk and have a nice looking farmer's market with THIS hovering over it all. The side isn't much better and the front? It makes the newer buildings like Dunkin Donuts and the great new residential commercial building on the corner of Howe and Bridge look like they lead to a run down factory.
I trust Shelton is working with the owners to revitalize one of the final remaining eyesores? (Spongex being the other).
