This building is a historical landmark.
It is an architectural gem.
And of course, it is a..............wait for it..............ICON!
Here is your beautiful icon which will live to see another day:

Our hearts would have been broken if anyone destroyed this beautiful building. It makes so much sense to save it. As one OTR hipster said, "What's exciting is that we have a business case to save these buildings at any cost." When he says "any cost", he means ANY cost, and especially if it's a taxpayer cost.
We were so close to losing our favorite historical landmark. But thanks to the work of us and our allies, this is one more icon that we (and your tax dollars) have saved.
