This stretch of the Main has certainly seen better days (it has seen glorious, legendary, iconic days). New life is needed, but do we really need this much of it? Does it have to be this new? And do we need it all at once?
Does a revitalization project necessarily have to be an ilot, a quadrilatère, or a quartier? Can’t the SDA be content to rebuild on the lots that they have acquired without topping it all off with a glass tower?
Can’t the site be allowed to develop organically – as the Main has always done – evolving to meet new demands as the completion of the Quartier des Spectacles brings fresh faces to the neighbourhood?
