Has he quoted a minimum price/offer?

If not and this is a truly refuse-to-sell-at-any-price, are there past precedents for expropriating on heritage grounds, or forcing/compelling a sale, when heritage status is under threat and there are other buyers more willing to preserve heritage status?

I'm not familiar, but I am genuinely curious. There are mechanisms available when the owner is being deceptive, intentionaly blighting the landscape, as in the case of the "scaffolding lie" and continual misleading info. Cities expropriate troubled/blighted buildings from bad/sleazy/absentee/etc owners. Is it just a matter of lawyer out-lawyering each other at this stage?

We can tolerate facodomy but getting rid of all of this heritage wouldn't do, given their significance, and the city's interest/incentivization in saving them.
