Ugly Building Broadway

Roe Corporation wants to remake Broadway between Warren and Chambers with the glass building in the middle of the photo above.  It looks something like the Chipotle’s building between Chambers and Reade.  Here is a photo of what the block used to look like.   Pay attention to the two buildings on the left and compare with the image above.  Over time have we gained or lost our sense of place and uniqueness on that block?
