It sounds exciting to have a forum for this important issue. The Junction has lost a lot of its built heritage over the years, including industrial heritage, but a lot remains intact. There's also a subtler side of heritage destruction that comes when renovations strip exterior details that are important to a building's architecture like the cornice, or interior renovations that gut the building of heritage design details and trim, and even artwork. It cheapens our community.
