Ask and you shall receive. I was terribly afraid that this would turn into some cheesy Santa Fe-style knock off. Instead, I have to give props to those in charge of this as the territorial style works in this scenario. Removing the loading bay from the south end of the facade was a great move as was providing more transparency into and out of the building.
Now if they could only squeeze in some streetscape work around the perimeter. On a limited budget, though, and for an old building, I'd say they've chosen wisely.
